The Early Childhood Special Education, Elementary, and Collaborative Education (ESEC) program is designed for candidates interested in teaching preschool through 6th grade in a traditional classroom or alternative learning setting.
Skills are applied as future teachers manage classroom instruction and student behavior and learn to effectively communicate with students and parents during field and clinical experiences in grade P-6 educational settings.
“The one thing I am going to miss most about Orlean Beeson School of Education is the relationships I have built with each professor. The thing that makes them special is their dedication to life-long learning and developing us as intentional educators.”
“They have established an environment of love and support that really allowed me to grow into a very well-prepared and confident first-year teacher.”
—Emily Daniel, Class of ‘21
The ESEC is the only accredited teacher education program in Alabama that includes four teacher certifications.
