"My journey through the Lake Superior State University Teacher Education Program prepared me greatly for my first year of teaching. Actually, I feel as though it is my second year of teaching because of the year-long internship. That was the most enriching part of the program. It was truly a hands-on/project-based experience - the best way that students learn! LSSU's Teacher Ed program is the BEST!!! Talking with teachers, principals, and educational leaders, they can't believe the exposure that LSSU grads have to teaching!"
