Elementary School Teachers

Depending on the school, elementary school teachers teach grades one through six or eight. In smaller schools, grades may be combined. There are still a few one-room, one-teacher elementary schools in remote rural areas. However, in most cases, teachers instruct approximately 20 to 30 children of the same grade. They teach a variety of subjects, including language, science, mathematics, and social studies. In the classroom, teachers use various educational methods, such as reading to them, assigning group projects, showing films for discussion, and using computers and the Internet to teach concepts or spotlight a particular topic. Teachers also use educational games to help their pupils remember their lessons.
