BA, Covenant College

"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."
 - education major Mark Paczewski '16

"I love being an elementary education major and having the close-knit community of elementary education majors. Covenant’s education department excels at providing opportunities for students to be in the classrooms throughout the entire degree program, even as early on as first semester of your freshman year in Intro to Teaching. I have really enjoyed spending time down at a school in Chattanooga this semester to give me hands-on experience to relate to what I am learning in my coursework."
