Are you interested in becoming an elementary teacher?

For every job posting in elementary education in Michigan, there are generally several hundred applicants. The candidates who go to the front of the line:

  • Have selected a high needs subject for their academic specialties such as mathematics, science, special education, English as a second language or early childhood education.
  • Have many hours of classroom experience thru volunteering in a school setting and substitute teaching.
  • Are flexible about what subjects and grades they will teach.
  • Are prepared to teach in a rural or urban school.

Plan ahead for success. Meet with an education advisor early and often.
