Celebrating the Teachers College during the Centennial

A solid and engaging education begins with effective classroom teachers and draws upon the talents of counselors, psychologists, technologists, principals, superintendents, researchers, and those involved in curriculum development and special education. Since Ball State’s earliest days, the Teachers College’s programs have prepared students to step into these critical responsibilities. To recognize and celebrate the contributions of its students, faculty, and alumni, Teachers College will host events throughout November and December.
