Graduate Success

Graduates of Wooster’s Teacher Education program pursue a variety of professional opportunities.

While many teach in traditional public and private schools, graduates also contribute to the education profession in other ways. In addition to teaching, Wooster alumni are employed as school administrators, school counselors, athletic coaches, intervention specialists, school psychologists, speech-language pathologists and higher education faculty.

We also recognize the importance of supporting students interested in alternative teaching opportunities such as Teach For America, charter schools, Teaching Fellows, Urban Teachers, City Year, etc.

One recent graduate completed a year teaching in the Marshall Islands and is now teaching in a remote region of Alaska. Another graduate is currently teaching in China while others have stayed closer to home finding positions in Ohio, Colorado, Maryland and many other states.

Many graduates with an Education major also attend graduate school and earn advanced degrees.
