Middle School Teacher Education:

The passion of those who choose the Middle School Education major is to work with students during the stage of rapid intellectual and physical development, between 10 and 15 years old (think Ron, Hermione and Harry in J.K. Rowling's first four Harry Potter books).

At the beginning of middle school, education takes on new meaning and becomes more challenging—just as the students’ social and physiological life is changing at a radical pace. It’s an exciting time in the lives of these students and an awesome period in which to have a profound impact on someone’s life through excellent teaching.

Aside from being a rewarding and challenging teaching experience, middle school education represents great opportunity for today's education majors. More job openings exist for teaching middle school students than any other age group .
