Courses in English, history, social studies, mathematics, art,
drama, physical education, and the sciences will provide you with a
broad base of knowledge. This knowledge will enable you to help
students learn in these same subjects. Knowledge of a second
language can be an asset, especially when working in schools with
bilingual student, parent, or staff populations. Courses in child
care, family and consumer science, and psychology are also valuable
for this career. You should try to gain some experience working
with computers; students at many elementary schools and even
preschools now do a large amount of computer work, and computer
skills are important in performing clerical duties.
