Elementary Education - Career & Professional Opportunities
Fairfield elementary education graduates are highly regarded and well received throughout the state and the region. Most of our graduates immediately begin their new careers as K-6 classroom teachers in Connecticut and the surrounding region. Some choose to work in public schools, others in private or parochial schools. Some of our graduates find employment in middle schools as well.
All of our graduates continue their own professional education, because to be a teacher is to be a lifelong learner.
Most choose to remain as classroom teachers, becoming master teachers. Others develop as:
- Curriculum specialists
- Community activists
- Educational entrepreneurs
- College teacher educators
- Policy makers
