Elementary Education

Students who are majoring in Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education and Special Education are invited to consider the Elementary Education Academic Living Community. Members of the community will have the opportunity to interact with faculty in the School of Education in deeply meaningful ways - outside of the classroom environment. Students will participate in book studies, visits to local school districts and volunteerism events with their School of Education faculty. Additionally, students will begin to build positive career relationships by interacting with teachers and school administrators from regional school districts.
