Most teaching degrees require a bachelor's degree, which usually take 4 years to obtain. Many universities and colleges offer bachelor’s degrees in education, including more specific programs such as early childhood education, if you want to become a preschool or elementary school teacher, for example. If you want to become a teacher in a specific subject, such as math, science, history, or art, then it’s a good idea to minor in the subject you’re passionate about. This way you’ll be very well equipped and qualified to teach your future students everything they need to know.

Hi,

The time depends on the type of teacher that you want to be. You need to know a lot of information to help your students. Some teachers take a minimum of four years. Some teachers do not need a degree and can just teach something that they know really well, like being a dance teacher. But some teachers teach hard jobs like being a doctor. It can take 8 years or more to be a doctor. And then there are more years for a teacher of doctors.

The cool thing is almost everyone is already a teach. Think about when you teach your friend how to play a game and what the rules are. You are teaching something.
