Become an Elementary Teacher

Become an elementary teacher

Would you like to pursue your dream of becoming an elementary education teacher?
We’d love to walk with you on that journey.

Become a teacher who is able to:

  • Think critically. Elementary education graduates are characterized by curiosity and a vibrant, inquiring mind in the continuous quest for discovery.
  • Transform practice. Graduates transform practice through deliberate, reflective and intentional action.
  • Promote justice. Graduates directly confront oppression, are committed to ethical practice, empathy and compassion, and are deeply caring.
