It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge - Albert Einstein
This Albert Einstein quote represents the mission of the School of Education at Monmouth University. We, as faculty and staff, welcome you to explore the School of Education links as you consider the field of education for your future career path. Education is truly an opportunity to awaken joy in all of the students that you encounter.
Our programs address education professions including teaching, counseling, reading specialist, speech language pathology, learning disabilities teacher-consultant, and educational leadership. All School of Education certification programs include extensive supervised field experiences in local K-12 schools, agencies and other areas related to the specific certification program. The school’s Office of Certification, Field Placements, and School Partnerships coordinates and supervises all initial teacher certification candidates’ field placements. The office also helps School of Education students in each discipline process all necessary paperwork to complete the steps to receive state credentialing.
The School of Education offers a wide array of high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs. Our Monmouth graduates currently serve as teachers, reading specialists, school counselors, learning disabilities teacher-consultants, school principals, and superintendents throughout New Jersey and the country.
As Interim Dean of the School of Education, it is my professional privilege to work with highly qualified and dedicated faculty, administrators, advisors, and staff who are committed to providing a learning environment that enables all students to be successful in their programs and view learning as a preparation for life itself. In addition, our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing high-quality advising that enables students to complete their programs in a timely manner. All faculty serve as student advisors and are present to provide a highly personal approach to discussing your professional goals.
The School of Education has partnered with many of the school districts, allowing the School of Education to offer you, the teacher candidates, rich opportunities to engage in meaningful practicums during your course work and prior to student teaching.
I encourage you to pursue your dreams and remember education is more than just imparting knowledge, it is the beginning of a life long journey..
