Teaching is a calling for those who want to share their learning and experience with others.
Education students learn to identify learning styles, assess student capabilities, and determine student needs. They learn how to develop curriculum, and prepare assessments and reports. Most importantly, they develop abilities to understand and explain difficult concepts to a wide range of learners.
