Elementary Education - Level Change Program Information
This program provides teachers with the knowledge and skills needed to add the Elementary Education endorsement to their existing Michigan secondary teaching certificates, allowing them to teach all subjects in kindergarten through grade 5 and in kindergarten through grade 8 self-contained classrooms. The level change may also extend the validity of existing endorsements to additional grade levels. Students complete the elementary studies minor and a portion of the professional education core that is specific to working with elementary students. Upon completing the program and passing the required state tests, students will be eligible to apply for the endorsement.
