Elementary Education & Special Education (K-6)
Students who complete these two field endorsements are endorsed to teach children in all elementary subjects in kindergarten through grade 6, in all schools. They may also teach in grades 7 and 8 in self-contained classrooms. Self-contained classrooms exist when students spend more than half the school day with one teacher who provides instruction in more than half of the academic areas of the curriculum.
Students are also endorsed to teach children and youth who have mild or moderate disabilities and who are verified as students with one or more of the following disabilities: developmental delay, specific learning disabilities, speech-language impairment (language verification only), mild or moderate mental handicap, behavior disorders, orthopedic impairments, autism, other health impairments, traumatic brain injury, and those verified children who are placed in multi-categorical programs in grades K through 6.
