The Education program at Asbury prepared me so well for this position. I feel highly qualified to teach and the transition from graduation to teaching went very easily. Dr. Riel and Dr. Crook had a huge impact on my career. They believed in me and prepared me so well.

*Elementary Education students are required to complete the clinical education components for the program in Kentucky elementary schools. For this reason, most online Elementary Education students are Kentucky residents or live close to Kentucky in a neighboring state and are able to travel into Kentucky to complete their clinical requirements.
