In Professor Murray Galella's words...
The teacher education program at Wilkes is unique because of the extremely close relationship the students have with their professors/supervisors. The teacher education program promotes caring, ethical and competent educators.
Our special education certification program enhances our elementary and secondary education programs. While out in the field, cooperating teachers have positively commented on Wilkes' Teacher Education Program.
My undergraduate degree was in English, and my original plan was to become an FBI Agent.
While in college, I volunteered my time at St. Joseph's Center in Dunmore, PA. This experience led me to Marywood Univeristy where I pursued my MS in Special Education.
I couldn't have made a better choice! I love what I do. Now, I am able to work with our future teachers to help them prepare to become exceptional educators.
