|We all remember those special teachers who connected with us, challenged us and really reached us. At Kirkwood, we can prepare you to make a huge difference in students’ lives. Our Education Careers interest area focuses on important aspects of becoming a successful teacher or paraeducator, including general teaching concepts and methods, behavior management, adaptation, foundations, educational psychology, and meeting needs of diverse learners.
As a Liberal Arts student, you will fulfill core requirements while choosing from specialty and elective options in education. And, since Kirkwood has transfer agreements with all three state universities and many other four-year institutions, transferring and earning a degree in education couldn’t be easier – or more affordable.
Kirkwood provides high quality preparation for the field of education
because they give hands on experiences and have small class sizes
and caring professors. I have friends who, like me, transferred to universities
for the rest of their teacher prep courses, and we all agree: ‘I felt so much more prepared than my university classmates because I started at Kirkwood.’
