Careers in Education


Careers In Education is for students who are seeking a career in education. Have you thought about being a teacher? Counselor? Speech Therapist? Develop the skills to prepare for a career working with children and preparing for post secondary education.  The program offers first hand experience in the laboratory preschool classroom along with opportunities to observe how children grow and develop in elementary and middle school settings.

The focus of this course is on the foundations of education.  Students will discover beginning teaching skills, classroom management techniques and study educational theorists. With these skills students will be able to work effectively with children of various ages and development.
