Hi all, I'm new to the forum. I'm a student at a community college in NYC (m 21/yo), a soldier in the Army National Guard, and a prospective teacher. I am wondering about entering elementary education and had some questions. 1. Is there a bias against/towards men in elementary education? 2. How saturated is the field? 3. Is it easy to find a job in another state? (nowhere in particular in mind, but I do want to leave NY when finished with schooling) 4. Would I be responsible for teaching math, social studies, language arts, and science? This is what I would want. 5. I am a bit confused on what to major in. I want to teach between grades 1 to 5. The school I want to transfer to for my BA has majors in History childhood education, math childhood education, biology childhood education, etc. Is there a big difference in this? Would they all be able to become elementary teachers? I'm sorry if I wasn't as clear as I would like to be, this is all just so new to me and I am anxious and excited to start! Any advice would be appreciated!
