Butler seniors Ronald Nored and Abby Soltis talk about how Butler is preparing them for teaching careers in Skype interviews featured in the online New Teacher Survival Guide at EducationDegree.com. (To watch, click on the “Education Student Interviews” tab.)

Nored is an elementary education major. Soltis is completing a double major in biology and secondary education, in order to teach high school biology.

Both said they appreciate the numerous opportunities provided by College of Education to observe and interact in actual classrooms. “We are teachers from the moment we are students here,” Nored said.

COE has taught her to “look at school through a different lens” than just her own experience, Soltis said. “It’s shown me what education should be like for all students.”
