For the person who likes children, few career options offer more challenging and rewarding opportunities than elementary teaching. Nurturing the learning of grade school children serves not only children, but their parents and society as well. Elementary teachers must receive sound preparation to be prepared for opportunities to influence the lives of others so profoundly.
The program at the University of Providence prepares prospective elementary teachers for successful teaching at all grade levels by providing thorough and balanced training in both teaching methods and content knowledge.
Elementary Education majors must take an approved concentration or complete a second major in Special Education. Concentration options are art, communication arts, gifted and talented education, health and physical education, mathematics, reading instruction, science and social science.
