We are thrilled that you are considering a career as a teacher. The teaching profession offers significant opportunities for Christian service, and we are excited about sending out exceptionally well-prepared and visionary teachers.

This guidebook will assist you as you plan your program of study. Use it to keep a record of your progress throughout the program, and bring it with you when you register for classes. The education program is complex; planning early and carefully will ensure that you optimize your time at Calvin. Remember: You are ultimately responsible for your academic program at Calvin College, which means that you must read the college catalog and this guidebook.

If you require assistance with planning your program, please contact the education department. We stand by ready to help you make wise choices that will better qualify you for a life of service to Christ.

Dr. Jim Rooks, Ed.D.
