" Being a student in Redeemer’s Concurrent Education Program was a wonderful experience. I learned how to be a competent and compassionate teacher from professors who encouraged and expected growth in my skills. Being a part of Redeemer’s Education Program was engaging, intellectually stimulating, and spiritually challenging. Going into my practicums, I felt well prepared and highly supported during in-class sessions. When I graduated from the program, I was ready and excited to have my own classroom. Erin is a Grade 2 teacher on a First Nations reserve in Northern Ontario. "
