Gifted faculty are a key to any program. The faculty in the School of Teacher Education at IWU are a vibrant and progressive community of instructors who bring a richness and depth of academic and professional experience to their students and believe in the importance of relationship-based teaching.

The professor/student contact does not end when the class period is over. Mentoring and individual relationships have impacted many of our students' lives throughout their tenure at the University.
