Why should I study Elementary Education:
Teaching in grades K-6?

Connections. Commitment. Community.

Children in grades kindergarten through six must develop the basic competencies in reading, writing, social studies, mathematics, and the sciences to prepare them for more advanced learning as they progress on the road to adulthood and citizenship. Further, appreciation of the arts and physical activities is fostered among children in the elementary grades. The elementary grades teacher has a wide range of competencies and develops a life-long passion for learning in general and for learning for professional growth in particular.
