There’s nothing better than doing something worthwhile, and making money to boot! Everyone you know older than five has been influenced by a teacher. Teachers prepare and educate students for the world. Starting with teaching the basics of math, reading and skills in preschool and elementary school, and move to more complex and specialized concepts in middle, high school and post-secondary school.
Teachers create lesson plans and teach those plans to the entire class, individually to students or in small groups, track student progress and present the information to parents, create tests, create and reinforce classroom rules, work with school administration prepare students for standardized tests, and manage students outside the classroom, such as in school hallways, detention, etc.
Other types of teachers include special education teachers, who work with students with a range of disabilities, adult literacy and GED teachers, working with adults and young adults who are no longer in school, and post-secondary teachers in colleges, universities and vocational schools.
