Elementary Teaching Pathway
What is the Elementary Teaching Pathway?
The Elementary Teaching Pathway is for students interested in becoming an elementary school teacher.
Teacher TRAC students may apply and transfer to the University of their choice. However, Teacher TRAC's flagship program is a partnership with California State University, Long Beach.
