Today there are many challenges to keeping the expectations of hope and opportunity alive, such as the enormous increase in students living in poverty with negative outside influences and without parental involvement. More than ever, the field of education needs men and women in teaching and administrative positions who are aligned with head, heart and hands. The head must have the knowledge to assess and respond to the problems that inhibit student learning. The heart must feel compassion as it sees students as God sees them. The hands must be skilled to perform the needed tasks with integrity and character.
For over 30 years, graduates of the School of Education have delivered opportunity and hope to tens of thousands of students. Our alumni are teaching literacy to students from diverse backgrounds while earning Teacher-of-the-Year honors. Our alumni are administrators who take the lead in raising student academic achievement and behavior — winning local, state and national recognition. Through quality education, they are providing their students with opportunities to achieve their hopes and dreams.
I invite you to investigate our teacher preparation, in-service professional training opportunities, leadership and administration course work, or our post master’s and doctoral programs. Together with our excellent faculty and dedicated staff, we can open opportunities for your hopes to be realized through the alignment of head, heart and hands.
