An Elementary Education degree from UNT Dallas is the first step in becoming a certified teacher in preschool through sixth grade. Elementary Education majors can choose from three pathways: ESL, bilingual, or special education. Students in the Elementary Education with ESL pathway will be prepared to teach all preschool and elementary students (including those who are learning English) in all core subjects (math, science, social studies, and ELAR). Many school districts in Texas require teachers to have an ESL supplemental certification.
The following are examples of classes you will take as an Elementary Education/ESL major.
