East Central University Department of Education


I selected East Central because it had a really good reputation for its education department. I’ve always known that I wanted to go into education and I had experience with alum from here Who, um, spoke highly of it. Field observation is a requirement from the education department What you do is you partner with a cooperating teacher and you join their classroom Depending upon what field you’re in there are different requirements For example field two you prepare a lesson and you teach it Which is a great opportunity to get a little bit of a taste of what you’re really going to be doing It’s a lot of fun You don’t just start out teaching a lesson, you get to know your classroom And your students which is a really good experience While you’re not a teacher yet, you do get to see the other side of education and what teachers really do, and that’s exciting and a good opportunity We are led by people who are passionate about what they do, and who are really good at what they do I feel like we have the best possible education department in the state of Oklahoma The newly remodeled education building is very exciting for us soon-to-be student teachers And teachers, because it equips us with the latest technology and resources that we otherwise wouldn’t have access to My classroom experiences have always been really positive at East Central East Central has some advantages over larger universities We get access to our professors in a way that you would not at a D-1 University Our professors usually know us by name, they know what’s going on in our personal lives, and they care And that’s something that East Central has something to offer over a larger University If I had to describe ECU I would say that it is community minded, somewhat challenging, but also encouraging I would most definitely recommend East Central to anyone interested in going to the education field We have the best possible resources, the best possible people and our department is dedicated to excellence
