Teachers by Trine

At Franks School of Education, we prepare you to be a teacher who touches lives by impacting the academic and social growth of your students.

We are dedicated to:

  • providing extensive experiences in a variety of schools beginning in your first semester;
  • creating a safe learning environment through small class sizes to encourage you to take academic risks;
  • incorporating engaging, hands-on learning experiences that deepen your content knowledge;
  • teaching you the latest evidence-based strategies so all your students can learn and grow;
  • providing Google Classroom training that can lead to certification before you graduate.

Our dedicated faculty are award-winning educators who are passionate, knowledgeable, and student-centered.  Through our 16:1 student-to-professor ratio in education courses, teaching majors grow in their educational knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become effective educators.

Our goal is to perpetuate the teaching profession by shaping future generations of teachers. Given our high job placement rates of ten straight years of 100% job placement, we feel confident we are accomplishing this goal.
