The Thelma P. Lally School of Education at Saint Rose has built its reputation on developing standout teachers who are fully prepared to lead a classroom and leave a lasting impact on students.

Our expert faculty have built strong connections with school districts from all over the country that often phone our College looking for candidates when job opportunities arise. Students don’t have to wait long to gain hands-on experience, either. As early as their first year, they’re placed in K-12 classrooms and begin to learn the skills necessary to succeed in a rewarding career. Our alumni haveĀ gone onto lead curriculum development for state education departments, teach English in China, launch groundbreaking afterschool programs for children with autism spectrum disorders, and head global learning organizations for Fortune 100 companies.

I see students in September having a hard time. Then they bring themselves, their education, and their maturity to a different level. Just to be a part of that is rewarding.
