Grand Canyon University and the College of Education promise assistance to any graduates of our teacher and principal preparation programs who are experiencing difficulty in their first year of teaching or leading. Believing in the excellence of our programs, we will provide assistance to any graduate recommended by Grand Canyon University for teaching or principal certification in the state of Arizona at the elementary or secondary level.
In 1984, Grand Canyon University and the College of Education began offering graduates of our licensure programs assistance when needed - at no expense to the school district or to the teacher/principal graduate. The need for assistance may be requested by the Grand Canyon University graduate, the principal or the superintendent. The appropriate assistance will be determined by the College of Education and can range from the graduate taking a refresher course in the area of difficulty to receiving mentoring by faculty who will coach in such areas as curriculum planning and design, classroom and time management, content presentation and individualized instruction.
