Physical Education Teacher, Ellen Hopkins Elementary in Moorhead
Physical Education and Health Majors
I loved my health education classes at Concordia. The classes were always filled with engaging conversation and debate. Our assignments weren't always traditional and they pushed the envelope for independent self-directed learning.

I experienced several different teaching settings while at Concordia via class visits, clinical hours, and student teaching. It was very beneficial to see how different teachers and different schools operate in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
