Every child is unique. They have unique personalities and talents. Unique hopes and dreams. Unique passions and struggles. And sometimes, the only way to really teach them is to learn about them – and from them – first.
True educators are lifelong learners, so at Grenfell you’re encouraged to keep your mind open to new people, ideas and perspectives.
Crafting a lesson plan. Leading a class. Keeping your students inspired and active. Every aspect of teaching is intricate. Our program will get you ready to face the daily adventures with innovative classroom practices and up-to-date knowledge of child development theory, teaching and learning.
“I’ve always wanted to be a teacher. Grenfell provided me with the skills I needed to become the kind of teacher I wanted to be.”
