Elementary Education

You can make a daily difference in the lives of young students and nurture a lifelong passion for discovery. We help passionate and committed individuals like you to become the kind of teachers that students will remember for the rest of their lives.

Introduce children to the pleasures of reading and writing, math, science, social studies, and the arts. As an elementary educator, you’ll learn about how children develop and learn, explore options for teaching a wide range of content areas, and develop the skills and knowledge to inspire lifelong intellectual curiosity in the students you teach.


IU graduates make up one third of newly licensed teachers in Indiana each year. To help you find a position that fits your skills, content area, and interests, our School of Education career counselors are available to:

  • Develop effective resumes and cover letters
  • Improve your networking and interview skills
  • Interview with prospective employers at education job fairs
