About the Program

Our mission is to prepare students for lifelong learning, developing future educators’ intellect, imagination, self-confidence, and motivation, while preparing them for the teaching profession. As an elementary education major, you will learn to investigate, reflect, analyze, and judge reality and truth through inquiry and discussion. You’ll develop values about teaching, society, health behaviors, moral issues, education, and political influences. We ask our students to think boldly and live Carroll College’s mission by participating in community service and by interacting with children and adults from diverse cultural, religious, economic, and intellectual backgrounds.

Teacher education advances this mission as it works within Carroll College’s Teacher Education Conceptual Framework. That framework is built upon a liberal arts education, structured by traditional educational philosophies, and embraced by an atmosphere of dignity, which values justice for all persons.

The goal of Carroll College’s Teacher Education Program is to assist students in developing teaching competencies in their chosen fields and to help them become educational leaders capable of responding to their students’ individual needs.
