EDUCATION

Why Choose Education?

Classroom teaching is a rewarding profession that enables articulate, caring, committed, and effective educators to help shape the lives and futures of diverse learners in an ever-changing world. Teacher education at EC is unique. Our students have extended and diverse experiences in K-12 schools beginning early in their program. Our students also have opportunities to explore urban, national, and international education systems during our Term III travel courses.

What Education Will Teach You!

Elmira College's teacher education curriculum prepares candidates to plan, construct, and deliver compelling lessons; create inclusive, and supportive learning environments; assess learner performance and use assessment data to inform instruction; integrate established and emergent technologies for instructional and assessment purposes; and reflect upon instructional practice as a means of achieving professional growth.

Where Education Can Take You!

Elmira College's education majors are institutionally recommended for initial teaching certification in New York and are prepared to enter the teaching profession upon graduation. Elmira College graduates not only teach in New York, but also obtain teaching positions in other states and countries and in public, private, and charter schools.
