“I had always wanted to be a teacher, and Bay Path had everything I was looking for in education studies, and it was the perfect fit for me. The College has prepared me to teach a diverse selection of students, especially children, as well as properly manage a classroom. From my Methods of Education courses to the Infant and Toddler course, I have been given a wealth of knowledge about the field I have chosen. The faculty is incredibly supportive and informative, and they have helped me determine where I want to take to my career.
“I have been given me the tools to teach in a variety of classrooms, and I’ve already had an opportunity to put my skills to use during my pre-practicum with kindergarteners and first-graders at the Sumner Avenue School in Springfield. It is a school with wonderful students, faculty and staff. It’s been an incredible experience to watch these students grow and learn.”
