The dual degree program at Canisius not only prepared me to be a teacher, it also helped me to find my love for co-teaching. This program not only exposes future teachers to a multitude of students, but also a multitude of co-teaching styles. Each class helped to add a different tool to my toolbox as a teacher and prepare me to begin my career.

I was able to apply what I learned at Canisius and my student teaching placements in my day-to-day life as a teacher. Being able to adapt to different teaching styles and types of students, I was able to enter the teaching profession seamlessly and feel comfortable in my role as a co-teacher. Along with a diverse course list and great experiences, my professors were able to give me a lot of the skills that I needed to interview for a teaching position. 

I couldn't be happier with my decision to pursue this degree and certification program. Canisius not only helped me to pass all of my certification exams on the first attempt but also to land my current position in alternative education at Lockport High School West as a Consultant Teacher!
