W PA/Ohio Schools for 3.0 elementary ed major
My D is interested in becoming an elementary education teacher. GPA 3.0/SAT 1030 (M&CR). After several presentations, I now understand that there are certain steps she must follow that are particular to the state in which she seeks certification. She's shy and a little socially awkward, but is very patient and kind with young children. When she's in a new situation, she tends to be more outgoing and confident - although she will never run with the "edgy" kids. She does not drink or party (and seems very opposed). She's definitely naive and young at heart. Would a state school with a freshman class of 1200 be suitable (slippery rock, clarion, Cal u, Edinboro)? Would a private school (mercyhurt, gannon, Pitt Johnstown) be substantially different? Has anyone had success with any W PA/Ohio school for their child seeking the same certification? Any advice would be appreciated!24 replies
