Satisfaction of Completers

Graduates from the Cato School of Education are sent a survey after their first year of teaching to rate their level of preparedness to enter the classroom.  They were asked, “Overall, how prepared were you for your first year of teaching after completing all coursework, clinical experiences, and student teaching in the Teacher Education Program at Queens University?”  100% of responses showed that program completers were satisfied with their education and selected either “adequately prepared” or “very prepared.”
