What will I learn?

This 12-month program prepares candidates for a career as an elementary classroom teacher with an initial license in Kindergarten through 6th grade. The program is set up as a cohort model in which you take all of your classes as a team. A new cohort begins every May.

Career Opportunities

Candidates spend ten hours a week in elementary classrooms; both the spring and fall semesters of their first year, collaborating with teachers as well as tutoring students and working with parents in a local literacy project. During their final semester, candidates student teach every day in an elementary classroom. Our graduates are highly recruited due to their extensive knowledge and skill developed in the program.

Research Interests

“Engineering is Elementary” is a current project being developed and researched in our partnership schools. Our candidates and the cooperating teachers in their partner schools are implementing engineering practices that disrupt students’ notion of “smartness”, build on students’ interest in engineering and science as well as encourage collaboration, creativity and perseverance.
