our mission

how we do it...

MTEC has certified nearly 2,000 highly qualified teachers through our certification pathways that balance the practical aspects of effective teaching with theory. MTEC's certification programs provide on-the-job coaching support and assessment of progress. MTEC also provides comprehensive, effective, and customized professional development workshops and instructional coaching focused on increasing student learning and closing achievement gaps.

Our model of personalized coaching-into-practice aligned to teaching standards lies at the core of our certification programs and Professional Learning Services. Whether you are an individual seeking initial licensure or a veteran teacher seeking to further your career, you will be provided with a highly qualified mentor to guide and support your professional growth. 

what we do...

Effective teaching empowers learners to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to embrace life-long learning, contribute to the common good as responsible citizens, and succeed in the world of work.

Milwaukee Teacher Education Center (MTEC) is a not-for-profit organization that serves as an innovative, performance-based professional development center that recruits, prepares, supports, and certifies highly qualified teachers for Wisconsin public, charter, and non-public schools.
