The School of Education Has a New Slogan!

December 14, 2020

Teach. Motivate. Educate.

The winning slogan was submitted by Elly Young during our School of Education Slogan Contest. Elly is an Elementary Education major at the off-campus ELED program at the Rend Lake Marketplace in Mount Vernon, IL.

She comes from a long line of SIUC graduates, many of whom went into education including her great aunts and an uncle. When it came time to decide where she wanted to complete her journey to become an educator, it didn't take her long to learn more about SIU and all that the School of Education has to offer. "I decided to go into education because I want to make a positive impact on young learners' lives, just like my teachers did for me all throughout my education - especially during my time as a Saluki."

Elly will be student teaching during the Spring 2021 semester.
