About the Program
Becoming an elementary school teacher is a challenging and rewarding career choice. As a teacher, you will be laying a foundation in a child’s knowledge base, educating each student in all academic areas, ranging from math and science to history, reading, and writing. You will also be teaching the process of learning for each student to build upon as he or she grows. In addition, your pedagogy will not stop upon completion of a degree, but continue to develop year after year.
Our Associate of Arts degree in elementary education is designed for you to transfer to a four-year college, which not only provides you with a solid educational foundation, but it also allows you to save money during your first two years of college. Upon completion, you will be able to transfer to any Colorado college with an elementary education program. Upon further education, you can become a teacher to work in schools, and could even become an administrator with continued experience and education.
