Become an Elementary School Teacher

The Multiple Subject Credential authorizes the holder to teach in a self-contained classroom at the pre-school through twelfth grade level. A self-contained classroom is one in which a variety of subjects are taught to the same group of students by the same teacher. Multiple Subject Credentials are typically used for teaching in elementary schools or self-contained settings.

Some specialized subjects (i.e., art, music, and physical education) may be taught by a teacher at the elementary level require a Single Subject Credential.
