  • Developing Young Minds for the Future

    For SFU Pre-teaching Students

    Theory and Practice is the bond that prepares our students in the Education Department. Our goal is to provide an environment for our prospective elementary, special education and secondary teachers not only develop the skills needed but also showcase these skills in real classrooms and in real schools with their first education course. Your hard work will pay off in the end because by graduation our students will have completed 200 hours of field experiences and 15 weeks of student teaching in area schools and educational settings.
