Education Alumni Success
Our graduates devote their lives to helping children and young adults learn, grow and prosper. They excel as teachers because they possess a solid base of knowledge, extensive preparation, and a desire to innovate and collaborate.
Through 2026, the employment outlook for teachers is good to excellent, with elementary, middle school and high school teaching jobs expected to grow by 7 to 8 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics. If you are willing to teach in a rural or urban setting, you will expand the number of teaching opportunities available to you. In addition, there’s a greater need for qualified teachers in certain subject fields, including math and engineering.
In the past six years, an average of 93 percent of our students have landed a teaching position within 6 months of graduating.
