You probably haven’t heard their names, but the work they do makes them today’s true heroes. They are teachers – the men and women who encourage, enlighten, and inspire their young charges every day; who find the idea of ‘making a difference’ irresistible; who refuse to yield to apathy and indifference.

In the University of Mobile’s School of Education, we know it’s not enough that our graduates become outstanding teachers. We expect that. And more. No matter what your career goals – from classroom teacher or principal to athletic trainer for a professional baseball team – we expect each graduate to be a person of character who will use his or her influence in a positive way to make the world a better place for the future.

“I wouldn't know how to be a teacher without University of Mobile. Just watching (the faculty) and seeing them communicate with each other and the teamwork they had, that helped me a lot. I knew I would have to work with a lot of different personalities.” Nina Bolar ’06
