Community College Student Planning an Elementary School Teaching Career
If you are planning a career as an elementary school teacher, there are many things you should be doing right now. Some California Community Colleges offer Teacher Education and Early Childhood Education courses, some of which may be transferable as part of a blended teacher preparation program. Contact your local community college to see what specific courses are offered. In addition, you should identify the 4-year college you wish to to transfer to, and the courses you will need to complete there. Students who are interested in elementary school teaching are advised to complete a Liberal Arts program in preparation for passing the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET).
