Early Childhood Education Minor
On your way to your elementary ed major, but interested in teaching younger children as well?
If you add the early childhood education minor to your elementary education major, you will be qualified to teach preschool (age 4) as well as grades K-6. You will also learn additional skills for teaching 5-year-olds--which could help you land your dream job as a kindergarten teacher. This additional coursework gives you added flexibility at a time when employment of preschool teachers is projected to grow faster than the average for occupations.
