About the Program

Once you decide that you want to become a teacher, the next step is determining what age group and subject matter you wish to teach. You may see yourself teaching elementary age children how to paint or leading a discussion on Hamlet with a high school English class. Perhaps you might enjoy working with preschool age children or preteens. There are so many options to explore at Bloomfield College, but chances are you already have an idea of the age group and subject matter you're interested in.
