Health teachers believe that teaching children to care about their bodies—what they eat, how they exercise, whether they smoke—will have a life-long impact.
P.E. teachers know that all children, regardless of age, benefit from moving their bodies in a multitude of ways.
Art teachers understand why all children need to create with their minds and hands, know that the arts are not a disposable part of education.

Defiance College has a rich teacher education heritage. For more than 100 years, the College has prepared and graduated teachers who not only teach, but become principals and superintendents as well. The success of Defiance College education graduates rests in part on the rapport established with area schools and the caring, personal attention given to each student by the experienced faculty. In addition to exceeding state minimum requirements, the program has many other strengths.
