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 often have one group of students and teach a variety of subjects, but sometimes they teach only one or a few subjects, such as language arts or mathematics and science. Elementary teachers work in public, private, or parochial institutions. They must also be open to diverse groups of people, for they work with students differing in age, sex, and race, along with different culture, linguistic, and religious backgrounds. An elementary school teacher is responsible for planning, evaluating, and assigning lessons; preparing, administering, and grading assessments; guiding classroom discourse; and managing the learning environment.
TESOL teachers help non-English speaking students learn and understand the English language. Teachers work in public, private, or parochial institutions. They must also be open to a diversity of people for they work with students differentiating in age, sex, and race, along with different ethical and religious backgrounds. TESOL is a global association for English language teaching professionals. TESOL encompasses a network of approximately 60,000 educators worldwide, consisting of more than 14,000 individual members and an additional 45,000 educators within the 100 plus TESOL affiliate associations. A TESOL teacher's mission is to ensure excellence in English language teaching to speakers of other languages. Teachers are also responsible for planning, evaluating, and assigning lessons; preparing, administering, and grading tests; listening to oral presentations; and maintaining classroom discipline. They also must prepare the student in the behavioral aspect, building comfort in different situation for life after graduation.
