Get out of your classes—and into a local classroom.
As a teacher education major at Champlain, you'll be spending time in a local school beginning in your first year. This early experience gives you a head start in building the skills and experience to launch your teaching career with confidence.
The first-year exploration provided by our Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to make sure you're on the right path. By working with various age groups and populations early on, you'll discover where your strengths and interests are—and will have more time to further develop your interests while you're in college.
After your first year, you'll declare your concentration(s). Each concentration corresponds to a teaching licensure endorsement—with the exception of Special Education—and many can be paired together. You'll work closely with your Faculty Advisor to navigate these options and choose the concentration(s) that suit you best.
