AAPI Future Teachers Program

The Teaching Pathways Program provides resources, opportunities, and support for students to explore teaching and education career pathways.  Students of color benefit academically when they are in classrooms with teachers of the same race. Minnesota’s urban school districts enroll a large percentage of Southeast Asian students, with some urban schools having majority Southeast Asian student enrollment.  However, only 2.5% of Minnesota’s K-12 teachers are Asian American.  More Asian American teachers and educators are needed to meet the representation of Asian American students in Minnesota.

The Teaching Pathways Program connects students to specialized College of Education and Human Development teaching programs, courses, workshops, professional development, and networks to progress towards teaching and education careers.
