What Can You Do With A Major In Middle School Education?

Middle school teachers educate children from early to late adolescence. They help students learn and apply concepts in a variety of subjects - including English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Middle school teachers are ethical and caring professionals endowed with the special knowledge and skills of working with school-based individuals, nurturing and developing learners to be inquisitive, achieving, and contributing members of their families, communities and the larger world. They have a specialized knowledge of teaching in one or more subject areas, and prepare and educate younger generations for post-secondary academic or vocational achievements. Middle school teachers work in public, private, and parochial school settings with diverse groups of students regardless of differences in age, gender, and race, along with different ethnic and religious backgrounds. Middle grades teaching is a career where you can express your passions, continue to develop your knowledge and skills in your areas of expertise, and inspire minds to learn and grow everyday.
