Hi,
That is a great question, teachers usually need a 4 year college degree and some practice experience as a Teacher. I found a link for you that I will include below:

Also, teaching is a career that depends on the state you live in for licensing requirements...I have included a link to the OK State website for teaching certification as well:

Good luck!

Teaching involves a number of different skills and qualities whether public/private/charter. I would say the most important are:

  1. People skills - being friendly and working well with others. You will need to be personable, caring, kind, friendly, compassionate, and understanding. These qualities make a great teacher. But you also need to be stern and firm in your directions, rules, and discipline
  2. Public speaking - every day in your class you will need to be able to speak and present information to your students, practice speech, and practice fluency of language and talking in front of others
  3. The subject you plan to teach - become a master of the subject you plan to teach, make sure you know as much as possible and learn as much as you can about the subject you plan to teach. Take as many classes as possible in this subject and learn everything you can about it.
  4. Psychology & Human Development - start reading books and research articles on human development and psych. It will be helpful for you to know how people learn at different stages and the best ways to teach them at these stages (depending on stage of development and schema).
