Quotes from Our Graduates...

"Malaspina's Education program equips beginning teachers with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to enter the teaching workforce as competent and confident beginning teachers. The faculty are highly dedicated to producing the best possible teachers and work tirelessly to adapt and improve the program year after year. I am amazed at the level of personal growth the program inspired in me in so short a time."
