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

There's no greater freedom than finding your purpose, says education advocate Ashweetha Shetty. Born to a poor family in rural India, Shetty didn't let the social norms of her community stifle her dreams and silence her voice. In this personal talk, she shares how she found self-worth through education -- and how she's working to empower other rural youth to explore their potential. "All of us are born into a reality that we blindly accept -- until something awakens us and a new world opens up," Shetty says.
