Support Future Teachers

Our graduates work at Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), a large, urban school district where our Panthers make up 35 percent of all teachers. In fact, our alumni are doing so well in the classroom that four of the last six M-DCPS Teachers of the Year and four of the last six Miami-Dade Principals of the Year are FIU alumni.
