I'm wondering what other career options I could pursue with a four year college degree in Elementary Education 1-8th grade. I'd like to explore working environments outside a typical Elementary school building. What do you know about Art therapy? or other careers which would require and excellent listening ear? What art related careers are there these days?
Have an Answer?
You could have a very fulfilling career in social work, or you could go back to school and get an endorsement to do art therapy which for special needs students has been shown to be very therapeutic for them. I would explore those options!

If you are interested at looking at college... put in a major and a zip and search away.

I hope that helps.
Thanks for your suggestions Nora :)
