Elementary Education Program

K-State student teacher

The elementary education program prepares you to teach children in kindergarten through sixth grade in a self-contained classroom. Elementary education is a career in which you can find the satisfaction of helping children learn, work closely with other caring adults, and contribute to the future of the world by educating tomorrow's leaders.


Secondary Education Program

K-State student teacher

The secondary education program prepares you to teach in grades six through twelve (high schools, junior high schools, and middle schools). Secondary teachers prepare to teach in one or more content areas. Critical and analytical thinking, careful and thoughtful communication, and a desire to explore, question, and solve problems are promoted in the secondary education major.
