For 26 years, I have had the pleasure of being part of the Mount Aloysius College family. I have watched the education program grow from its beginning as an associate degree program to now offering bachelor degrees with a variety of teaching certificates in early, middle, and secondary education as well as a masters program. Teaching is a career that promises daily challenges with life-long rewards, and it is a privilege to educate our students about this wonderful profession.

"What makes the Early Childhood/Elementary Education program at Mount Aloysius College so great are the experiences that are provided for the students as future educators. The program is so well balanced between providing us as students with hands on experiences that prepare us for our futures as well as preparing us with all of the background knowledge that is necessary in being an effective teacher. It is clear that this program was founded upon the four core values of this institution. The professors are all extremely caring and want to help students develop both as teachers and as individuals. They are welcoming of students and try to help in any way possible. Most importantly we are provided with hands on experiences in and out of the classroom through the various service opportunities that we are given"
