All of our education faculty members bring an average of 20 successful years of teaching and administrative experience to the classroom — this combination of academic and real-world knowledge creates a rich learning environment for students.
All education majors, in addition to completing internships off campus, work closely with children in the Early Learning Lab with students age 3 to 5 years, as well as those enrolled in The Roberts Academy, a 2nd to 8th school for talented children with dyslexia.
Florida Southern College is committed to ensuring that our students are prepared for the challenges of today’s classroom by offering both STEM Education and Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Reading Instruction courses leading to concentrations in Education.
Partnerships will serve as a strong bridge supporting teacher educator preparation, academic and clinical experiences, and theory and practice.
This intentional, closely supervised, and highly engaged learning opportunity for future educators will serve as a model program demonstrating the School of Education’s commitment to the preparation of outstanding future educators by embracing their engagement in the local school district.
