Specialized, Rigorous Classroom Instruction. Personal Guidance.

Elementary teachers help shape young students into the learners they will become. This is why the elementary education program at Elms College offers specialized, rigorous classroom instruction and personal guidance as you do fieldwork in area schools.

We train teachers who are competent and caring, understand their responsibilities to all children, involve their pupils’ families in the learning process, and challenge their students to achieve their highest potential.
