The Education department provided me excellent experience to be ready when I first started teaching. The professors were competent and empathetic towards all students. I was able to have a personal relationship with my professors which helped me be better prepared. The department prepared me to get a job right out of college in my field. I was able to be certified to teach two different areas of special education in my state which made me more employable.
