Teaching Area(s): Education

My favorite place on campus is the sidewalk.  To me, the sidewalks on campus are where the true spirit of Mount Union exists.


The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that job opportunities in the education field will grow in the years to come due to a larger number of children and adults seeking education opportunities and increased retirements.  This growth is expected to be larger at the elementary (grades 1-5) and middle school (grades 6-8) levels. In addition, reforms, such as universal preschool and all-day kindergarten, will require more preschool and kindergarten teachers as well.

As an early childhood education major at Mount Union, you will be able fulfill this growing need with preparation for teaching at the prekindergarten through grade three level.  You will be primed to specialize in early child growth and development and to secure the reading endorsement.
