The education department prepares students who desire to become elementary and secondary teachers. Students begin by building knowledge of the history and philosophical foundations of education in America. They are trained in current theory and research-based practice in the design, delivery and management of curriculum and instruction. The program also provides opportunities for field-based experiences in urban school settings.
On behalf of our pre-service teachers, staff and faculty, the Education Department at Emmanuel College express our deepest sympathies to all of the families whose loved ones lost their lives on the morning of December 14th at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. In the wake of those acts of violence, we have renewed our commitment to support school safety initiatives, create inclusive communities within the classroom, and forge partnerships with families, caregivers, community members to promote the healthy socio-emotional development of all learners.
