Loras College offers Teacher Education programs leading to licensure in early childhood education, elementary education, secondary education and instructional strategist (special education). In these programs, students work with full-time professors and outstanding practitioners from area schools and agencies.
Professional Development Schools (PDS) and other school-based partnerships are used to induct Loras students into the teaching profession prior to student teaching. These experiences offer students opportunities to work directly with partner educators in their classrooms to develop the skills and best practices that today’s teachers need.
"My experience as a Loras Education major has been incredible, from serving as the Education Club president at a national conference, to working hands-on with elementary students through my coursework. I know I would have never experienced all I have without the personal dedication of my professors."
- Alexandria Settanni
