Elementary Education

Mission Statement

The Elementary Education Program provides personalized and challenging undergraduate experiences designed to meet the educational needs of students who will become teachers in a complex, rapidly changing and culturally diverse society. Our teacher candidates will be prepared with the knowledge, skills, values and techniques to interact successfully with children and others who affect children's lives. Beginning with a strong foundation in education psychology and child development, our teacher candidates will study the elementary curriculum and apply knowledge in culturally and linguistically diverse settings through clinical and field experiences. Elementary Education teacher candidates will demonstrate knowledge, skills, and dispositions in Elementary Education by mastery of the standards of their professional association, the Association for Childhood Education International.
