Dedication to education

Bonnie L. Tyler (Hoffman) graduated from Bloomsburg State College in 1963. For most of her career she has taught in 12-month environments and worked with student populations with extremely challenging circumstances and from diverse populations. Tyler has never lost her faith in public education and individual students. We appreciate her service to her community and especially to the students she taught throughout her long and distinguished career.

Teaching and Learning

Bloomsburg University Teacher Education

Teachers have an impactful role in the life of a developing child through mentoring, advocating and fostering learning. And as the child learner develops, the teacher continues to be a big influence in the classroom as a role model and support mechanism.

Through the College of Education's Conceptual Framework vision, the Department of Teaching and Learning develops students into responsible educators who provide a safe, caring and effective classroom environment for their future students. It also provides students with a strong foundation of research-proven teaching methods in specific subject and discipline areas to effectively prepare their future students for the next step of their lives.
