Prepare Yourself To Be a Leader
Teaching is about more than enjoying children. Good teachers have the ability to engage, inspire, challenge and lead children to achieve their best. The College of Education is dedicated to preparing educators who are ready to make a difference in the lives of children. If you have an interest in educating children and being a positive force for educational excellence consider becoming a teacher.
