Aspiring Educators

The Aspiring Educators Living Learning Community
brings together students who want to explore careers working in K-12 education and are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children and youth.


Partnering with the Graduate School’s Teacher Education program, Aspiring Educators will connect with like-minded LC students, have opportunities to explore options for serving young people in schools and communities, and network with local educators.

  • Gain hands-on classroom experience in K-12 schools or other educational settings.
  • Visit local school districts.
  • Learn about different areas of the teaching profession.
  • Connect with others at LC interested in exploring careers in education.
  • Attend exclusive events and activities to support your growth as a future educator.
  • Engage in networking opportunities with the Teacher Education faculty, staff, and students on the graduate campus.
  • And more!
