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.
