How do you give attention to one child while managing a class of 25? What are creative ways to engage a community of learners? How do you capture young hearts and minds and inspire them to reach their potential? The rewards and challenges of teaching in today’s classrooms are many.
Nazareth’s unique multiple certification program prepares candidates to apply for teacher certification in four different areas of general and special education, which leads to better preparation for the classroom and more employment options. Students graduate with two full academic majors, one in inclusive early childhood/childhood education and one in the liberal arts and sciences. The childhood education degree program boasts a high placement rate for its graduates along with superb career services support.

My most meaningful learning experiences took place in site-based classrooms taught by professors who enhanced the study of theory by using their experiences from their own classrooms."
