Preparing students to become ethical leaders and exceptional educators.
Teaching is not a job, it is a calling. Today’s teachers are part of a professional community that promotes lifelong learning, community engagement, and empowerment. Viterbo’s exceptional placement and Teacher Performance Assessment rates attest to our program’s strengths and the success of our graduates. Our education faculty have extensive experience in the classroom and are dedicated to training teachers to become ethical leaders and exceptional educators. Graduates have over 100 hours of field experience prior to student teaching and receive extensive training in both their content area (e.g., art, business, or science) and the theory and practice of being a teacher. Our program has a strong, collaborative partnership with area schools and students’ field experience in local schools happens early in their course work.
