Were you the kid who always wanted to play school? You’d pretend to be the teacher while your friends were your students? You’re not alone. You’re one of the reasons we offer an elementary education major.
In our elementary education program, you’ll observe classrooms. You’ll study learning styles. You’ll learn how to manage a classroom. You'll host elementary schoolchildren at events on campus. You’ll explore the needs of exceptional children. And, before you graduate, you’ll student teach. Yes, you’ll be the teacher.
Then, with your degree in elementary education and your teaching certificate, you’ll be ready to be an elementary school teacher. Only this time, it will be for real.
