There is no substitute for a great teacher, especially during
the early years when children are learning how to learn and when
so many of their attitudes about school and education are
formed. There is no more important time than now for students
like you to commit themselves to this profession as we play our
part in building the future.
Our Early Childhood Education majors work in a variety of settings such as teachers in public schools (PreK-4th grade), teachers and directors in preschools and child care centers, or as teachers and administrators in Head Start.
Others have followed opportunities with the state in positions
such as evaluators in the Tennessee Three-Star Rating System.
Some graduates have gone to work with children and their
families within organizations such as the YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and others.
Early Childhood Education is about caring; being committed to
children and helping them grasp life's opportunities through
education. Your dedication is their inspiration.
