As Curry College students majoring special education, Samantha Bolivar '14 and Christine Martinelli '14 gained a wide variety of experiences through relevant classroom exercises and years of valuable field placements in Boston-area schools. But little did they realize that they would soon be putting those skills to good use on the other side of the world.
Kelly Nichols '12 (Elementary Education) was recognized by the Everett School Department as a Golden Apple Award winner for the 2015-2016 school year. Golden Apple Award winners are nominated by their peers and supervisors and "represent the best that the Everett Schools have to offer."
"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.
