Education and opportunity

I think the key aspect of the Education program that has allowed me to grow and develop to the capacity I have is the self-reflection portion of every class/field experience. I’ve come to a point now where I’m automatically reflecting on where I am at, areas I’ve improved in, and areas I need to improve in. It’s allowed me to become efficient at setting goals and finding ways to achieve those goals. Through this process I’ve learned so much about who I am, about teaching strategies, about educational philosophies, and so much more.


Our small classes and in-school seminars create a collaborative and challenging learning environment that will help you to become the innovative teacher you aspire to be.
