Student talking with a professor

Meet Our Faculty

 

Everyone remembers a teacher that made an extraordinary impact on their life.

The School of Education at Florida Southern is filled with faculty members who possess the talent and dedication to become those special teachers for you, and will transform you into an exceptional teacher for your students.

Education majors benefit from limited class sizes, ensuring that they have the opportunity to engage with their professors. All of our education faculty members hold a master’s degree or higher and bring an average of 20 years of teaching and administrative experience to the classroom. This combination of academic and real-world knowledge creates a rich learning environment for students: not only do they learn best practices from their books, but that knowledge is enhanced by the real-life lessons shared by their professors.
