Fall 2017 Elementary Education Program in Schaumburg


          Roosevelt University’s College of Education will introduce a new Elementary Education Teacher Preparation Program starting this fall on Saturdays at the Schaumburg Campus.
          An info session introducing the new Elementary Education program will be held on Wednesday, June 21 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Roosevelt’s Schaumburg Campus, 1400 N. Roosevelt Boulevard.   Anyone with an interest in teaching who has at least an associate’s degree from a community college is encouraged to attend. Click here to register for this event.
Offering opportunities for a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and Master of Arts degree in Elementary Education in a two-year timeline to completion, the program will kick off with its first cohort of up to 20 students on Saturday, Sept. 9. 
Developed jointly by Roosevelt faculty members and teachers and principals from Schaumburg School District 54, the program will feature an intensive curriculum and significant opportunities for hands-on teaching experience at District 54’s Hoover Math and Science Academy in Schaumburg.
 “We know that Northwest suburban school districts increasingly are having difficulty finding qualified new teachers. This program will help meet the needs of our school partners by preparing teachers who are well versed in the latest teaching methods and have substantial experiences practice-teaching in the classroom,” said Tom Philion, dean of Roosevelt’s College of Education.
Tours of the Schaumburg Campus and information on graduate degree programs for licensed teachers also will be available during the June 21 session.  Roosevelt offers master’s degree programs for licensed teachers in Instructional Leadership, Reading, Second Language Special Education, Teaching and Learning, and Training and Development.  These programs are offered in on-campus, online and hybrid formats.
