About The Program

Because we believe that a well-prepared student becomes the best teacher, our students learn how to teach and how to use teaching to make a difference in the lives of their students. Our curriculum certifies students in early childhood education, special education, biology, chemistry, English, French, German, mathematics, music education, physics, social studies, and Spanish.

You’ll learn how to put educational theory into practice using the latest teaching methodologies and technology. Our programs are designed to meet all content requirements mandated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, while giving students more than 200 hours of field experiences prior to their student teaching semester.

Why LVC?

 

  • Dedicated and highly competent teachers are always in demand. The teacher education programs at Lebanon Valley College prepare our graduates for the competitive job market in the teaching profession.
  • The Education faculty keep current with research and best practices through membership and leadership in state and national organizations.  We hold membership in the Council for Exceptional Children, The National Association for the Education of Young Children, the International Reading Association, and the Pennsylvania Association of College Teacher Educators, to name a few.

 

 

Designing units of study for the AACA Museum, presenting at Inquiry and other conferences, and writing a research article for PAMLE are a few of the things that employers said made my résumé stand out from other applicants.
