Teaching is a vital profession, perhaps now more than ever.  To do it well requires passion and dedication but also a fundamental understanding of children and learning, proficiency in a variety of pedagogies, the ability to formulate a sound plan, and the wisdom to know when to deviate from it.  To do it well rewards you with deep relationships with children and adolescents, and psychic pleasure in watching them learn and grow under your tutelage.  To do it well in the 21st century results in opportunities for many students that they would not otherwise have.  The School of Education is committed to enhancing its academic and co-curricular programs in concert with these fundamental principles.
