Earlier this week, 17 students were inducted into the School of Education, while 8 students were sent out to complete their student teaching.

Welcoming future educators

Every semester, CUAA’s School of Education accepts students who have committed to becoming either Elementary or Secondary teachers. They complete a variety of assignments and key assessments throughout the semester that prepare them for upper-level courses within the School of Education.

This semester, 17 students were welcomed into the School of Education and were celebrated at a special welcoming breakfast, where they received a gift and each inductee got to hang their photos on the SOE wall alongside other current students and alumni inside of Krieger Hall.
