“When I first stepped on campus I honestly felt like it was home. People were so nice to me. They opened doors for me. They're all smiling. When I saw the students they were all accepting of each other, asking each other questions. And they made me actually feel like I was a Curry student even though they knew I was still a high school student.”

"I loved the Education Program at 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." - Lauren Chuha '14, 3rd Grade Teacher, Lawrence Public Schools
Growing up, Jordan Lancaster '13 always knew she wanted to be a teacher. She finally realized that dream after graduating from Curry with a degree in elementary education and integrated liberal studies, and is now teaching at the Laura E. Richards Elementary School in Maine.
