Conceptual Framework

conceptual framework symbolThe Professional Education Unit at Frostburg State University oversees the programs for initial and continuing preparation of teachers and other school personnel. The conceptual framework establishes the unit's shared vision for preparation of educators. The conceptual framwork upon which each program rests focuses on the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to develop powerful learning communities. The university, the public schools, parents and other community members link together using their hands, heads, and hearts to prepare the finest pre-service teacher candidates. The Unit's graduates are expected to be dedicated professionals, instructional leaders, continuous assessors, educational advocates, collaborative bridge-builders, and reflective decision-makers.
