I love Curry. I applied to five other schools. Coming here was definitely the best decision. At other colleges, you have one or two semesters of student teaching, and Curry gives you four to make sure that you really want to and are ready to teach.

Meet Alyxis Crompton '18 - Special Education

Alyxis Crompton '18 found her calling based on her experiences at a recent summer job. "I worked at a water park geared toward children with special needs; a lot of the kids had autism or used wheelchairs. After they'd go down the slide, they'd run to me and give me a hug. It really made me begin to see that I had a connection with them. Right then I realized I wanted to spend my life working with kids who have special needs."

Education Honor Society

Pi Lambda Theta was founded in 1910. Its mission is to honor outstanding educators and inspire their leadership on critical education issues.
