“Emmaus taught me how to reach the whole of every learner. Having a wide variety of students requires a wide variety of instruction types, and Emmaus prepared me to use them.”



Erica Chavez

Classical Conversations Coordinator
Dubuque, Iowa

"Emmaus has prepared me to work with various learning styles and to incorporate effective classroom management techniques. I am working with four and five year old students at our local Classical Conversations group located in Dubuque, IA and I am thankful for the specific instruction concerning learning styles and classroom management that I received while at Emmaus. I believe the instruction I received while at Emmaus has helped me to better plan for the different students that I work with on a weekly basis."



Mindy Seeman

"I am so grateful for the strong biblical foundation I received through Emmaus. I was very blessed to be part of the first group of student teachers from Emmaus who were able to student teach overseas. That had been my dream ever since I first went into education."
