Limestone Elementary Education Program Featured In Newsletter
The Limestone College Elementary Education program was recently featured in the February 2018 edition of the Cleveland County Schools Communicator newsletter. The newsletter is sent to nearly 2,300 employees in Cleveland County’s education system.
Cleveland County Schools is a Corporate Grant Partner of the College, which allows employees to receive a $400 grant each semester for undergraduate classes and a $750 grant each semester for graduate students.
Limestone’s Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education is designed to prepare students with the content knowledge, theoretical background, and practical experience necessary for success as classroom teachers.
Through small classes and close student-faculty interaction, the following concepts are emphasized in Limestone’s Elementary Education program: the ability to communicate clearly in both speech and writing, the ability to assess and address the varying needs, abilities and learning styles of all students, the ability to implement an integrated curriculum as well as employ various teaching methods and strategies, and the ability to understand the need for continuous professional growth when employed as a teacher.
