Education Majors

  • Teacher and students

  • Our graduates have good things to say about our education program:

    Jessica Vigliotta -- teacher, Bradford Area High School
    “I will be forever indebted to the Education Department at Pitt-Bradford. Not only did the staff provide me with diverse exposure to actual classroom experiences, but also supported my field in English so that I may best serve my students on every level. I was able to quickly secure a job in the Bradford Area School District immediately upon graduating. I easily transitioned from the middle school to the high school because of the strong background provided to me by my colleagues and professors.” 

    Jessica Clark -- teacher, 7th grade English at a charter school in  Rochester, N.Y.
    “I had a wonderful experience at Pitt-Bradford with great professors that used much of their own experiences as teachers to help educate me along the way. I still use a great deal of the lessons I have developed in undergrad to guide my instruction. As of right now I am in graduate school to earn my master's degree in 5-12 Literacy. I want to thank all of my professors in the Education department who really helped pave the way for me to become an outstanding teacher!” 

    Jessica Resig -- instructional designer, Penn State Behrend
    “The faculty members in Pitt-Bradford's Education Program created meaningful, authentic learning experience that prepared me with the know-how and confidence necessary to land a teaching position immediately after graduation, even in a very competitive job market. Because of their guidance and expertise, I had the tools I needed to hit the ground running and build a student-centered, rigorous classroom of my own.”
