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 in Kindergarten through 5th grade, a degree in Elementary Education from Tennessee Wesleyan is the first step.
The elementary education degree at TWU is intended for those who want to teach students from approximately 5 to 11 years old, with licensure opportunity in K-5th grade.
Students will learn how to use classroom management procedures, develop lesson plans, use researched-based programs to teach children, incorporating 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.
Elementary education majors with licensure will be able to teach in the state of Tennessee any grades between Kindergarten and 5th grade.
The degree also begins the path to administrative and leadership positions in education, or specialized positions like instructional coach.
