As a mathematics education major, you’ll split your time between rigorous mathematics courses and education classes. Your education classes don’t just talk about teaching. They offer vital hands-on experience with 100 hours of classroom observation beginning in your second or third semester. When it’s time for your semester as a student teacher, you’ll be one who gets their students excited about all the facets of math. This comprehensive approach is one reason why our graduates are highly sought after in southwestern Virginia school systems.
Small classes and personalized attention are a given for our math education majors. Ally Carter, high school math teacher, and class of 2019 explains, “I am grateful for the way BC faculty poured into my life. Dr. and Mrs. Buterakos became like a second family to me. They are still a huge support system, offering encouragement and resources. Thanks to BC, I have a wealth of knowledge, in math and education, that I am figuring out how to implement in my own unique way!”
If you’re excited about the prospect of becoming a math teacher, we’d love to talk to you about BC’s math education degree program. Email Dr. Lewis Buterakos or Dr. Shellie Brown to take the first steps toward earning Virginia teacher licensure today.
