The best part about being an education student are the connections I have been able to make with professors and graduate level students. I have enjoyed all the practicums the CU Teach program offers. I like this program, because it gave me a chance to explore actual teaching early in the program. The last thing I enjoy about the education program is the small classroom settings because it gives you an opportunity to meet other students who share similar interests.
