An an aspiring high school mathematics teacher. what are some tips or activities I could use to engage my students in learning and make it enjoyable and fun instead of sitting in classroom for almost 2 hours?

Mathematics is one of the few subjects students struggle on and I aspire to be the teacher who make math exciting and easy to learn, but I have no clue on how to teach my students specific concepts in order for them to understand it. #mathteacher #educationmajor #highschool #teacher #teaching #study

I want to be a high school math teacher and wondered if it is better to major in math or in secondary education with an endorsement in math.

I have my associates degree and have worked at a community college towards a math degree so that I can teach high school math. The school I am transferring to has suggested it would be best to switch my major to a secondary education major to get practice with teaching. The professors at my community college told me I need a math degree to get enough math to teach. The advisors at both schools have different views and told me to do more research, and so far I am still confused as to what would be best in the long scope of things so that I am well prepared to be a successful teacher. #math #secondary-education #mathteacher

I want to be a teacher and I don't know the best steps to do that or even the direction to take, all I know is that I have to go to college and get my Bachelors degree. So, is there anyone who can help guide me in the right direction?

I'm asking because I want to be a teacher once I get out of high school, specifically a math teacher. I'm currently a Junior and I've always been good at math as long as I try, it just comes natural. So with that said I think being a math teacher would work out well for me I just don't know how to do that. Also I would like to add that Career Village is something really cool, I've always been pressured to look for a career and I just find the one for me but I think with this I can actually get good help! #teacher #mathteacher #math #career

If I become a teacher is it responsible to move from state to state?

I know a lot of states offer pensions to teachers. I would like to experience life in many states but I am curious about how long I need to stay in a single state in order to accumulate a pension. #pension #mathteacher #highschoolteacher #traveling
