Whether they are undeclared or fully committed, new college students need to know there are wonderful opportunities available through the Disney Company.

As a college professor of Education, I teach multiple sections and multiple topics each semester. This semester I am teaching Social Science for Early Childhood Education. In essence, I am teaching teachers how to teach Social Studies to elementary students. Our second week of class did not meet because of the observance of Martin Luther King’s birthday.
