School Administration

The School of Education also offers the Educational Specialist in School Administration that is designed for those with a MA in a field other than School Administration.  This program leads to initial principal certification and thus prepares the student to serve as an educational leader.  The student will be taught the skills needed to effectively lead teachers and other school staff in order to create a productive and positive school environment.  Furthermore, the student will analyze current research to understand what works in education and help teachers implement those best practices in the classroom.

This program leads to eligibility for initial principal certification in the state of Missouri and requires at least 22 credit hours of coursework at the 60000 level and students must pass the Praxis II, School Leaders Licensure Assessment.  Applicants must have a valid teaching certificate at the level at which they intend to be certified and two years of teaching experience.

For more information, please contact Dr. Graham Weir, EdS Department Chair at (636) 949-4315.

"Teaching and Leading as an Art and a Science"
The School of Education agrees that the general outcome of the teacher education program must be teaching professionals that believe and implement teaching as a blend of “Art” and “Science” as represented by the Beauty and Mechanism of the Spellmann Clock Tower… Teaching as an art because teaching is a craft that must be learned and applied in an authentic environment. Teaching as a science because it must be influenced by research and best practice for optimal student learning to be achieved.
