For the sixth straight year, 100 percent of graduates from Trine University's Franks School of Education who were seeking teaching positions will work as educators in the fall.

"We celebrate any year 100 percent of our teacher education graduates secure teaching positions, and to have earned this distinction six straight years is incredible," said Anthony Kline, Ph.D., dean of the Franks School of Education.

Of the 20 students who graduated as education majors with the Trine University Class of 2018, 15 sought teaching positions and are employed as educators, and four will complete their student teaching this fall. Thirteen of those employed as teachers are working in Indiana.

Area school districts employing teacher education majors from Trine's Class of 2018 include Southwest Allen County Schools, Richmond Community Schools, Wabash City Schools, Goshen Community Schools, Elkhart Community Schools, Prairie Heights School Corporation and Lakeland School Corporation.

"Our state has a critical need for teachers, and Trine University and the Franks School of Education are proud to provide excellent educators - as evidenced by the consistently positive feedback we receive from principals and superintendents - to help meet this need," said Kline.

Kline attributed Trine's success to several factors, including "expert, student-centered faculty, highly effective preschool through grade 12 clinical educators in our great local schools, and passionate education students." He also highlighted the extensive practical experience Trine builds into its education programs, noting that by the time they graduate, education majors at Trine University have spent more than 850 hours in teaching observations, practicums, student teaching and other clinical experience, beginning in their first year on campus.

"We know this feat is not coincidence," he said.

In an environment where many college education programs are seeing steep declines in enrollment, the Franks School of Education is expecting a record incoming class of freshmen this fall, and has seen 50 percent growth in overall enrollment over the past two years.

"Having six straight years of 100 percent graduate employment continues the exciting, positive momentum in the Franks School of Education, and will help us build on our record growth," Kline said.
