Kindergarten – Grade 8

Elementary Education

There is only one endorsement area that covers Kindergarten through Grade 8: Elementary Education.

A teacher with this endorsement may be assigned to teach in a 1st grade classroom, a middle school science classroom or a middle school social science classroom.

Principals have much flexibility in assigning teachers with the Elementary Education endorsement to classrooms. Some universities offer an Elementary Education teacher preparation program in conjunction with other endorsements such as Early Childhood Education, Special Education or English as a Second Language.
