What Can You Do With A Major In Elementary Education?
Elementary School Teachers educate children from kindergarten through the fifth or sixth grade. They help students learn and apply concepts in a variety of subjects. Elementary school teachers generally have one group of students and teach a variety of subjects, whereas middle and secondary school teachers usually specialize in one or more subjects, educating further into the subject. Teachers work in public, private, or parochial institutions. They must also be open to diverse groups of people, for they work with students differentiating in age, sex, and race, along with different ethical and religious backgrounds. Along with educating the students, the teacher is also responsible for planning, evaluating, and assigning lessons; preparing, administering, and grading tests; listening to oral presentations; and maintaining classroom discipline.
