Best Elementary Education Major Jobs and Careers

Congratulations on your degree in Elementary Education, the selfless and determined calling to provide young students with an enriching and stimulating environment to learn and grow.

Or in simpler words, elementary education.

You’ve toughed it out, the days spent student teaching (indentured servitude), those long nights huddled over textbooks in the library, the exam marathon that is Praxis, and — let’s be honest — wondering if it was worth it all.

And now that you’ve got your diploma in hand you realize that this was all the easy part.

Well, sort of.

But now the job of getting a job starts and you find yourself asking what now?.

Well, that’s where we come in. We literally created a career map just for Elementary Education Majors– such as yourself — to aid your navigation of the uncertain waters of recent graduation.

Feel free to focus on the map alone — it’s pretty cool, if we do say so ourselves. But for those of you who can’t put a good book down (a children’s book that is), keep reading.

We’ll give you the rundown on:

  • What skills you’ll need
  • How to begin
  • What jobs you can expect to find as Elementary Education Major
  • Some quick interview tips
