Marylou’s Answer

I have a bachelor of science in theater communications education. I ran a high school theater program straight out of college.

Teaching is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. And you will find that to be true.

So get yourself a bachelor of science in education. It’s a four year degree, and you do your last semester student teaching.

I was lucky enough when I did my student teaching that the teacher I was following decided to quit his job! So I inherited his job straight out of college!

I can’t say this would happen for you, but just saying.

Do what you love and he will never work a day in your life. Trust me.

Andrew’s Answer

Miyana,

Your search may have been too specific. I searched High school teacher reqs and left out English part.

1. Pursue your undergraduate degree (Earn your bachelor’s degree)
2. Complete a student teaching internship
3. Get certified/ pass state-mandated skills tests
4. Obtain license to teach

Please see links below for more info.

Haruhiko’s Answer

The best way is to find a university which offers a bachelor degree that prepares you for the credential program ( which is the license program for a teacher). Then you just need to follow their curriculum. Yes, you still have to take a few tests to verify your competency. For example, all of CSU and UC universities in California should have programs to help you become a teacher in the subject of your choice. So pick a university you want to attend and check out their education department. And if you want to know more about it, contact them. Good luck!

A bachelors degree in Education and a minimum amount of English classes. The Department of Education Teacher Certification website will tell you what English classes to take. Some states require a Bachelors in English and a Masters in Education.
