East Stroudsburg University’s (ESU) Teacher Education Unit (TEU) has identified a number of competencies that candidates will master as they progress through their respective programs.

These competencies, or Beginning Educator Outcomes (BEOs) are directly aligned with the TEU’s mission, vision and unit-wide assessments.

As such, the BEOs are designed to develop beginning educators who are creative, knowledgeable, and reflective by providing evidence-based practices and diverse, authentic field experiences that continually improve teaching, learning and leading.
