Methods of Teaching

Learn how to teach the next generation

Cosmetology Instructor Training Introduction

Teaching cosmetology is a wonderful way to share your expertise and love of the industry with others and to help your profession as well. Receiving your Instructor's License will also allow you to participate in Continuing Education classes in our state. The Methods of Teaching course offered by Mrs. Angie Shuler, Mrs. Barbara Padget, and Mr. Steven Dawson will do much more than prepare you for the Board. You will go to your first teaching experience/professional demonstration with confidence because you will know how to do the following:
Present interesting, lively lessons that will get your point across using the most current and successful methods available.
Lessen your workload by making students more responsible.
Handle the disruptive students.
Ensure that your students retain what they learn long-term--not just enough to pass the next test.
Diagnose and address every learning style, including your own.
Involve your students in the learning process.
Promote cooperative learning in a variety of ways.
Show students how to work together to achieve a common goal.
Keep your sense of humor.
Utilize the most current, interactive technology on the market.
Enjoy your job.

Quote from Angie Shuler

"Learning to teach is one thing. Learning to handle your classroom and all aspects of learning is something else. My educational background--a Master's Degree in Secondary Education, 36+ years of experience in the classroom, Pivot Point and Milady training and knowledge acquired as Educational Director for 8 cosmetology schools--will be what makes the difference in your education. Having served as co-chairman of the national Cosmetology Educators’ Association (CEA) for 4 years and presenting classes for the past 14 years, as well as presenting at the Chicago Midwest Beauty Show and at the Orlando Premiere Hair Show will give you an edge. I have also taught Instructor CEU classes for many state associations. This is my 40th Methods Class. I look forward to working with you and sharing my love for teaching."
