Members of the faculty in the Education department bring a wide range of practical experience and professional interests to their classrooms at Carson-Newman. Who better to train teachers than professors who possess not only the latest theoretical knowledge in the field, but academicians who also have honed skills in the classroom? All of our professors have solid teaching experience in the kindergarten through grade 12 levels.
Faculty members in the Education Department know it takes hands-on, one-on-one instruction to train an outstanding teacher and they are committed to individual attention. Our professors are recognized within the Carson-Newman community as enthusiastic, caring, and accessible to their students, for whom they serve as strong role models in the teaching profession.
The sense of family, camaraderie, and shared purpose among students and faculty members in the department is exceptional. In addition to regular meetings, students are warmly encouraged to visit their professors and advisors at any time if they have questions or problems. Other support services include advising and counseling, as well as direct and intensive supervision of each practicum and the student teaching semester.
