Nick Ciambrone

A foundation for success

A distant job fair journey sparked by a love for NASCAR led this recent Bloomsburg University graduate to his first full-time job, along with a solid foundation of classroom teaching forged by the College of Education.

“When you’re a teacher, you become so much more," said Ciambrone ‘15, a full-time teacher at Piedmont IB Middle School in Charlotte, N.C. "I thought to myself, I know BU has taught me well, I can do this.”

Teaching and Learning

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.
