It’s almost become a cliché, “not all heroes wear capes.” Most of them teach!
Teachers pour their heart and soul into the development of young people, and for those that want to work with the youngest of these, a degree in Early Childhood Education from Tennessee Wesleyan is the first step.
The early childhood education degree at TWU is intended for those who want to teach students from birth to approximately eight years old, with licensure opportunity in preschool-3rd grade.
Students will learn how to use classroom management procedures, develop lesson plans, use researched-based programs to teach children how to read, understand and use math strategies for Pre-K-3rd grade and incorporate instructional technology.
It’s more than just learning to teach, however, as students see how family, school, and community working together effect and develop children.
Early childhood majors with licensure will be able to teach in the state of Tennessee any grades between PreK and 3rd grade.
If a student obtains the Early Childhood Degree without licensure, there can be job opportunities for places such as day care programs.
