Field Experiences for The TCC Education Student - Hands On, Real Life Experiences
Best practices for training future classroom teachers hold that they have as many experiences in the service of children as early as in their professional training.

Testimonials From Former and Current TCC Students
This program relates the content material to real life situations. There is never a question of "How will I use this?" or "Why does this matter?" We are taught up front what we as future educators will be experiencing in public schools.
This program made me want to be a teacher much more than before!
My favorite course this year (EDF 1005) and really helped me to determine what field of education I wanted to go into as well as helping me to feel more prepared for the rest of my college education in the education major.
By taking EDF1005 my eyes have opened as far as all of the factors that come with teaching. As a result, I have decided that by taking this course it has only furthered my desire to be a teacher. Intro to Teaching is definitely one of my favorite classes that I have taken at TCC, and most definitely the class that I talk about the most after leaving.
Loved the open discussion in the classroom.
Overall, I really enjoyed and gained a lot of knowledge from this class.
