Educator Preparation Program


21 of the HC Education graduated for 2018 are already employed in their own classrooms this fall!  Of the other six - one graduate is a interventionist, one is in Law School studying education law, another student is coaching at the college level, one is a exploring opportunities by substitute teaching in the Hawaiian Islands, and yet another student has been selected for the Memphis Residency Program for a masters degree in urban education.  The HC EPP faculty and staff are beyond proud of this group of new educators!!

This website could not hold a list of the ways our graduates are employed using their education background! To be sure, MOST alumni do teach in a traditional classroom setting in schools all over the country. But many have careers that are outside of the typical "classroom teacher" scenario. We have grads working in other jobs that utilize the education coursework - some include:

  • Educational Testing
  • National Park Services
  • Sylvan and other specialized learning centers
  • Tutoring
  • Campus Crusade for Christ
  • Head Start and other preschools
  • After school programming
  • Childrens Museum programming
  • Educational Technology
  • Maryknoll Alternative Schools
  • School administration
  • JET program
  • Invisible Children Teacher Exchange
  • Home School Co-op
  • Educational publishing
  • Social networking
  • Education Association
  • Boys and Girls Clubs, Inc.
  • Girls, Inc.
  • Native American Reservation schools
  • Charter Schools
  • United States Military
