The best teachers are compassionate, patient, and able to communicate well. Through the English courses, students will gain a strong background in oral and written expression. They’ll develop their proficiency in reading and analyzing literature, and stimulate their appreciation, awareness, and understanding of the fundamental human problems and situations revealed in great literature. The solid base in communicative arts equip these future teachers with the tools necessary to not just lead a classroom, but connect with their elementary or special education students.
