To become any type of teacher, there are different levels that can be achieved, and you can work with a variety of people. You can become an elementary teacher, high school teacher, private tutor, or a college professor. There is plenty you can do if you want to become a teacher.
First, decide what type of teacher you want to be and what age group you want to work with. This will help you decide the level of education you will need to achieve your goals to become a teacher.
If you want to become a teacher you are going to have to go to college. Keep your grades up during high school so you can get into the college of your choice. You will have to go through a teaching program, but every school is different and has different requirement; you will generally spend four or five years in school.
After you finish your teaching program you will have to receive a teaching license in the state you wish to teach in. Some colleges grant licenses upon graduation. If you’re not sure how teaching licenses work in your state, contact the education department in your state.
After receiving your bachelor’s degree and possibly getting some experience in the field of teaching, you can continue your schooling in order to receive a Ph.D. so you can teach at the college level. This is only for those that wish to teach at a higher level, but it wouldn’t hurt to continue going to school. In fact, most teachers go on to receive their master’s degree, as some schools require this.
