"The education department at Covenant College has really helped us prepare for teaching careers, and they provide us with many opportunities to work in classrooms along the way. I was able to work with a classroom as early as my freshman year. Being able to go into an elementary school classroom and utilize what we have learned in our classes has been extremely helpful for me to not only learn what I am studying, but also learn how to use it."

"My favorite class so far has definitely been T.I.P.S. (Teaching In a Pluralistic Society)...It was such a hard semester enduring the readings, projects, and papers for that class, but through homework, the lectures, and the challenging discussions, I learned so much about how to be diversity-minded while teaching. Though the class is focused on educating children, the topics that were raised really encouraged me to broaden my worldview and place aside hidden biases within myself. "
