Tech alum Holly Fox teaches an elementary classElementary Education K-6, B.S.

We know that teaching children is a calling for many people. They are driven by a passion for nurturing, interacting with, and shaping the minds of young people. Indiana Tech shares that passion, which is why our Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education stands out.

A practical, hands-on approach

We believe that in-the-field, practicum experiences in public or private school settings help our students develop important skills. This keeps the curriculum fresh and flexible, adjusting to real-life settings easily. Our students are up-to-date in modern teaching practices, with a curriculum strong in technology, instructional methodology, classroom management, motivational strategies, and diversity.

Four values central to our graduates

We stress a hands-on model of learning in the majority of our coursework. Four themes run strong throughout the program and are ingrained in our graduates:

  • Knowledge of content, context, human development, and pedagogy
  • Skills and disposition of a reflective practitioner who considers the impact of actions
  • Respect and appreciation for diversity
  • Professionalism in all aspects of his/her career 

These concepts are stressed in every aspect of our program, leading to caring, responsible, passionate elementary and middle-school teachers.
