We help prepare teachers of prekindergarten through fifth grade for diverse and inclusive educational settings, learning how to produce educational knowledge and apply it to benefit children, families, and communities.

Your student experiences include both face-to-face educational theory and practicum experiences, as well as a full-time student teaching period at the end. You will actively involve yourself in elementary classrooms where you observe, assist teachers, tutor individual children, work with small groups of children, and lead whole-classroom activities.
