This program provides teachers with the knowledge and skills needed to add both an elementary endorsement and an early childhood endorsement to an existing Michigan secondary teaching certificate, allowing the holder to teach all subjects in general and special education preschool, all subjects kindergarten through grade 5 and in kindergarten through grade 8 self-contained classrooms. Students complete both the elementary comprehensive and early childhood ZS majors (General and Special Education), 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 endorsements.

The curriculum at Baker absolutely helped me. I had great instructors, instructors who were educators. Just for teachers to connect with students, it was important to me for those instructors to connect with me.
