As an elementary teacher, you will influence the intellectual development of children in school and classroom settings. You'll play a memorable role in their young lives by helping them understand and learn about the world around them. You complete coursework on subjects like:

  • Educational theory, research, and psychology.
  • Best practices in instruction, curriculum development, and learning assessment.
  • Legal and ethical issues in teaching.
