Your experience as a student of Education at Christian Brothers University is guided by two main principles: "Teacher as Leader" and "Leader as Servant." The values, beliefs, and understandings stem from these concepts and run as themes throughout the program. They will also have a profound impact on your future career as an educator.
Teacher as Leader
With a teaching license, you can touch the future! You can inspire others and change lives, just like CBU’s energetic and talented graduates who are providing engaging instruction, improving literacy, and expanding math and science education.
CBU teachers are working here in Shelby County Schools, Catholic Schools, Charter Schools, private schools, and in the six municipal school districts in Shelby County. In addition, CBU graduates are teaching in Mississippi, Arkansas, several counties in West Tennessee, in many states around the country, and we have even has our teachers serve English Language Learners in South Korea and Japan!
Leader as Servant
As an educational leader, you can guide and influence the development of a school culture that values the academic and social growth of its students. You can collaborate with colleagues and create shared leadership roles to build a vibrant learning community.
All over the south, CBU leaders are working as principals, central office administrators, and learning coaches in Shelby County Schools, Catholic Schools, Charter Schools, private schools, and in the six municipal school districts in Shelby County.
In other areas of the country CBU teachers are serving in the capacity of Lasallian Volunteers – teaching in our Brothers schools in St. Louis, New York, Chicago, California, the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana, and right here in Memphis at DeLaSalle of Blessed Sacrament!
