Equip yourself for a fulfilling teaching career with a degree – and certification – in elementary education. Kindergarten and elementary school teachers make a median average of $55,490 per year. And the field itself is growing, 6 percent by 2024.
Perhaps you’re more interested in passing along what you’ve learned about early childhood education to an older student base – teaching the teachers. With a median annual salary of $75,430, employment of postsecondary teachers is projected to grow 13 percent over the next decade.
Or you could pursue a career in other fields altogether. With the solid foundation of critical thinking and people skills an education degree provides, you’ll be well prepared to pursue a variety of professional positions.
