Date: Jun 04 2004 Major: Education (This Major's Salary over time) I would say that my student teaching experience was terrible. I would say I was treated quite unfairly during that time. But also, it wasn't the right field for me. I loved the liberal arts courses. What I really gained from Oakland University was the ability to think logically, perform research, and write very well. I transferred to OU after being away at college. Being away wasn't good for me. It was hard to meet people at first, but once in the college of education, I became more aquainted with people. Also, I had 48 credits in music and they were all transferable or taken at Oakland. However, the education college did not count these for a major or minor. I ended up with a "fine arts" minor and language arts major because I had so many literature courses. So, if you transfer into the college of education, be careful. I had 178 credits in total and they acted like they were doing me a favor granting me my degree when student teaching was unsuccessful. In their defense, some faculty members did try to steer me into another major other than elementary education.
