“My grandfather inspired me to pursue a career in education. He taught me the power that education has to change lives.”
Your classroom is calling.
Lewis & Clark’s programs for educators prepare you to work in diverse school settings and with all children—including those from different cultural, linguistic, and economic backgrounds, and those who have special needs. Teachers learn to investigate and support each child’s unique growth—academic, social, and emotional—as citizens of the world. Here, extensive content preparation and research-based models form the basis of a rich intellectual experience and ensure your success beyond the classroom.

“I want my students to be comfortable in sharing their thoughts and ideas around their own race and identity without feeling disparaged or compromised by other adults or peers.”

Alisun Thompson and Lina Darwich, assistant professors of education, are developing a study in collaboration with researchers at UC Santa Cruz to address this specific question.
