Gladys L. Benerd School of Education

A Career that's Never "Just a Job."

As educators, we change people's lives for the better. We unlock the power of the written word. We demystify the laws of physics. We lead organizations that help individuals become the people they aspire to be.

Few careers are as rewarding.
