Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education

Succeeding as a teacher at the elementary or middle school levels require a special individual who loves young children and wants to make a positive difference in their lives, assisting them in their educational and emotional development.  It is a rewarding and challenging occupation that requires a solid foundation in educational theory and practical, hands-on knowledge to be applied directly to the classroom.
