Education and Training Requirements

High School

Courses in English, history, social studies, mathematics, art, drama, physical education, and the sciences will provide 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. Gain some experience working with computers; students at many elementary schools and even preschools do a large amount of computer work, and computer skills are important in performing clerical duties.
