Prof. Bobbi Rosenquest says she chose to teach at Wheelock College because its core mission to improve the lives of children and families dovetails exactly with her passion for early childhood education. She says ensuring that infants, toddlers, and kindergarten-age children get a strong educational foundation is the key to success throughout their lives. Prof. Karen Worth adds that Wheelock’s approach to early childhood education–which focuses on social justice, developmental psychology, and support for families–is unique among higher education institutions. Rosenquest says Wheelock’s program also ensures that students gain hands-on experience in a variety of classrooms, giving them the skills they will need to be effective educators.
