Kindergarten and elementary teachers teach a variety of subjects to children between the ages of four and thirteen. Kindergarten teachers also help children develop attention skills, acquire good personal and social habits, and develop inquiring minds. As an elementary or kindergarten teacher, you would prepare and present lessons, provide extra help when necessary, monitor pupils' progress and discuss and evaluate their needs with parents and education professionals. Because more and more exceptional pupils are being integrated into classes, elementary and kindergarten teachers will need to develop additional specialized teaching skills.
WHAT YOU NEED:
To be an elementary or kindergarten teacher you must have a Bachelor of Education degree, which is offered at major universities and is usually completed in three years. Some students complete an undergraduate degree before pursuing and education degree. To be admitted to a degree program, you need a high school diploma. Some CO-OP programs are available.
