DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
For more than a quarter of a century, the Education department at The University of Virginia's College at Wise has prepared hundreds of pre-service teachers to enter and work successfully in the teaching profession. The current full-time and part-time faculty of the Education department of the College carries on that tradition by challenging and encouraging our future teachers to meet the needs of our children as they face an ever-increasingly complex world. The education professors bring a diverse wealth of knowledge, scholarship, and experience to their teaching and advising; they are committed to the success of every student who has accepted the rewarding challenge of becoming a teacher.
YOU are the heart of the Education Program at The University of Virginia's College at Wise. Here you will find a variety of resources and services you will need throughout your time in the Teacher Education Program. We invite you to get the most out of your experience by taking advantage of all that UVa-Wise and student-led organizations have to offer.
