During my time in the program, I grew in many ways. I was able to develop in my understanding of who children are and what they ultimately need. I was challenged to write lessons that were relevant and thought provoking. And I was encouraged to strive to do all I could to show the love of Christ to my students, even in a place where His name is not accepted. This program gave me a solid foundation for who I should be as a teacher and a servant of Him."

CREW is the Emmaus Teacher Education student organization. This group meets regularly for fellowship, planning, and fun activities. All declared majors are eligible for voting membership in the group. Interested freshmen are encouraged to participate in CREW but with no vote.
In February 2012, Emmaus Teacher Education juniors, seniors, and faculty traveled to Central College in Pella, Iowa, to hear Harry and Rosemary Wong , classroom management and student achievement experts. The First Days of School, the Wongs’ book on effective teaching, is the highest-selling book ever in education, with more than 3.6 million copies sold worldwide. Because Emmaus uses this book as a practical handbook in both junior and senior field studies, students and faculty were thrilled to meet the authors and get their copies autographed.
