Teachers in the U.S. rate their lives better
than all other occupation groups, trailing only Physicians.
Teach@Mines is tailored specifically to the needs of Mines students and alumni, and we have connections with several teacher certification programs in the state of Colorado.

We offer courses for students to both try out teaching and to prepare to teach (K-12 or college). A person can start on this path at any point in their Mines career as an undergraduate student, graduate student or as a Mines alumni. The earlier you begin, the more flexibility you have.
