Shaping Your Professional Edge

What gives  you a professional edge?

Why would a school system hire you rather than one of the many other recent graduates competing for that position?

Being a Longwood graduate will give you some advantage, but how will you distinguish yourself from others with the same qualifications, the same brand new teacher licensure?

  • Take advantage of the opportunities offered at Longwood!

  • Transform  yourself into a citizen leader who has the edge that will set the stage for your brightest, most rewarding future!

  • Take a look at the chart below to see a few of the wonderful oppolrtunities to explore as you create your unique professional profile.
