Education @ Fontbonne

Why the Elementary Education Program with Fontbonne?

Our education/special education faculty has years of experience teaching — and being teachers in the field. The well-rounded liberal arts education found at Fontbonne, coupled with the specific expertise provided by the education department, gives students a great foundation to live their dream of being a teacher. In the Center for Teacher and Therapist Education (CTTE), our students learn in a collaborative environment with small class sizes and faculty who emphasize discussion and communication.

Our program offers individual advising and a comprehensive curriculum that includes vast and varied real world experience. You’ll begin working with children in classrooms early in your program — a real distinction at Fontbonne. Our education and special education students complete a variety of practicum assignments with diverse populations at schools throughout the St. Louis area.

TED: Ideas worth spreading

Would you choose to build a house on top of an unfinished foundation? Of course not. Why, then, do we rush students through education when they haven't always grasped the basics? Yes, it's complicated, but educator Sal Khan shares his plan to turn struggling students into scholars by helping them master concepts at their own pace.
