Elementary Education

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.
