WELCOME TO THE TRADITIONAL
CERTIFICATION PROGRAM

One of the foundational components of our program is this emphasis on mentoring.  We believe that the very thing that can empower one to be a transformative educator in the field is the teacher’s ability to mentor students. A mentor recognizes that his or her mission is to invest in the mentee for their growth. Here at DCC – we not only teach this idea that a qualitative teacher-student relationship should develop into a mentoring relationship, we also practice it. Our faculty are highly relational – serving our graduates even years later into their careers.
