About

At Simmons, we provide a highly collaborative environment, individualized programs of study, supportive faculty mentors, and plenty of hands-on experience. Although we offer a one-semester teaching practicum (the state minimum), many students opt to pursue our unique full-year internship, which allows them to gain more classroom experience than most teaching programs provide.
