Teach Lake County

"We believe all children can learn and succeed, but not on the same day in the same way.  We built Teach Lake County to provide teachers in rural communities with the tools and support they need to ensure all children have that opportunity."-Brock Falkenberg, Lake County Superintendent of Schools


Teach Lake County is a convenient, caring, and customized teacher preparation program designed for teacher and student success in rural, high-poverty schools.
