Hear from Teachers Who Went through the Program!
-I chose Concordia’s teacher education program because I wanted to be able to integrate my faith and career choice. Concordia has allowed me to grow in both aspects of my life.
-I like Concordia’s teacher education program because of its flexibility in its placement program. The standard of education and modern education strategies allow its students to go almost anywhere in the country.
I was attracted to the small size and intimate setting at Concordia. I wanted a place where education is viewed as an art form and a program with lots of interaction between professors and students. Now that I am here, I’ve found all I was looking for. It is so simple, but it is nice to walk into a classroom and see that every person is excited to be there and smiling.
-I chose Concordia for the student/teacher ratio. I enjoy knowing that teachers care about me and that they want to see me succeed!
-Education classes are a fun environment when the teachers care and interact with all of their students. I am not just a number to them.
Concordia cares about the success and well being of each student, and every education professor offers their help and support during the credential process. I am getting a great education through an excellent credential program that has taught me how to be successful in the classroom and in life.
I have enjoyed Concordia’s credential program because the professors are so great and personal.
Concordia’s Education program not only gives you the skills and knowledge you need to be a teacher, but also gives you the hands on experience in the classroom.
I had been out of college and working for more than 7 years when I decided to go back to school. Concordia made the admission process easy and provided personal support every step of the way. The credential program was also highly recommended by my friend who currently teaches in the Newport Mesa School District and felt the program prepared him for life as a teacher.
Nothing we do in our classes is frivolous or busy work. It all has a purpose and you see how you will use it in your future classroom.
I chose Concordia University because they offer smaller classes with professors who have worked as teachers in both elementary and secondary classes. The experience and knowledge they have to share has been valuable in my education. I also appreciate the times that the classes are offered. I have been able to keep my full-time job during the day and take all of my classes at night.
In this credential program, it is amazing to watch what you are learning to do.
