A successful path for education majors includes working outside the classroom

The TCU College of Education has two options for full-time teaching tracks: the teacher residency program and the “regular track.” Both involve working in community classrooms. 

The ability to gain hands-on experience is important for the future educators coming out of TCU. 

“Being exposed to real experiences and being placed in a classroom gives us the opportunity to have experiences at such a young age,” said senior education major Mary Madison Boesch. “Knowing how to teach comes from hands-on experience, so being placed in field work early on prepares us more than you could imagine.”

The college highlights the exceptional opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience early in their careers, providing them with a valuable learning experience.

“With an internationally recognized early childhood teacher education program and a nationally recognized middle/secondary program, we are leaders in and out of the classroom,” the college’s website reads. 

“Being placed into cohorts with other education majors has been an enriching and supportive experience,” said senior education major Maeve Clark. 

Clark highlighted that an enthusiasm for teaching children unites the education students, fostering a tight-knit community that encourages interaction and collaboration among them.
