Elementary Education Professional Program


Whether you are a current student in our program or just inquiring, we encourage you to review the information on our website. Earning a teaching certificate can be a complex process at times and it is to your advantage to familiarize yourself with the various forms, deadlines, requirements and materials to make your time in our program successful.

The programs in elementary education are designed to prepare thoughtful, knowledgeable, and effective educators for a diverse society.  Consistent with national and state standards for what teachers should know and be able to do, the elementary education curriculum is a carefully sequenced professional program that is firmly backed by current research on effective teaching and learning. We encourage our students to solve problems, make good decisions, and show respect.

Woodring College of Education fosters community relationships and a culture of learning that advance knowledge, honor diversities, and promote social justice. We are dedicated to preparing thoughtful, knowledgeable, and effective educators for a diverse society. 

Prospective elementary education students are invited to meet with an advisor for more information about the program. Please contact us to set-up an appointment.

We look forward to meeting you!
