What does it take to be a teacher?
I'm in 8th grade and I have a class called career and technology. My teacher is having us do a project about the careers we would like to do when we are older, she asked us to ask some questions we have. #children #teaching #career #teacher
It is amazing to see that you have asked this question which means you are already inclined towards Teaching Profession and done the first thing right.
Teaching is not merely a job, but it is a responsibility according to me, because the future of every student depends on the Knowledge provided by the teacher.
To be a teacher you should firstly be really passionate about it, have a good understanding about the subject you are going to teach, develop a method of teaching which is unique and which is helpful to students, understand the difficulties faced by students and always be available to resolve queries.
Work on enhancing your own knowledge and impart the same to everyone.
Carrie recommends the following next steps:
You have to live working with children and you must have a lot of patience.
Most importantly, make learning fun.
You have to be able to work with disruptive students and develop strategies to correct their behavior.
Try to be a tutor to a friend or child in your neighborhood to get experience.
Later on, get a job as a camp counselor or at a local after-school program,
Then you need to get a Bachelors degree at a 4 year college that has a good teachers program. They give you an internship in your last year working with a Supervising Teacher. You need about 1200 hours of internship experience in a brick and mortar school. Good Luck!
It is a very rewarding career but you have to be devoted to your students and be willing to work many hours at home preparing lessons and you don’t get paid overtime. Gail 😊👍
