Social Studies Teacher
Brunswick High School, Brunswick, Ohio 

I graduated from John Carroll in 2011 with a degree in history and a certification in Integrated Social Studies. JCU was able to prepare me in many different ways for not only my teaching career, but as an adult. The education department does a fantastic job in helping you get ready for interviews and the whole first year teacher experience, from classroom management to time management. All of the practice lessons and role play activities helped with real-life teaching experiences.

JCU’s education department teaches its students on the up-and-coming new techniques of the classroom. Lastly, because of all the different classroom discussions and feedback that took place in the classroom as an undergrad, I feel prepared for administrators and other teachers to walk in my classroom and give feedback, whether positive or negative.

I am a better teacher and person because of my positive and life-changing experience at John Carroll University.
