Hear from one of our graduates

“The education classes have helped us to think like teachers of tomorrow. We’ve had to really identify what positive experiences we wish to have in the classroom and what our career ambitions are. For example, I have learned much about the value of creativity and the integral role it plays in the psychology of a child.”
