Elementary School Teacher Jobs

Elementary School Teacher Overview


Elementary School Teacher is the perfect occupation for someone who wants to work in a fast-paced and challenging work environment where they can really make a difference in the lives of children. Elementary School Teachers not only teach young students, but they also work with parents and school administrators, working to fix any obstacles that may be in students' ways. Teachers often work nine or more hours a day at school before coming home to complete additional tasks. Teachers plan engaging lessons, deliver the lessons, grade student work and keep track of student grades. They teach the mandatory curriculum, prepare students for standardized tests and evaluate student achievement. Similar education jobs include positions such as teacher aides and Education Administrator jobs.

Elementary School Teacher Education Requirements


In order to become an Elementary School Teacher, applicants must first complete a bachelor's degree in elementary education or a related field such as early childhood education. Gaining job experience by completing summer programs and student teaching is usually a part of education. Prospective teachers must also complete any testing and additional requirements required by their state in order to receive their state teaching license. Background checks and knowledge of CPR are also often required.

Elementary School Teacher Job Market


There will always be a need to educate the rising generation. Currently, the projected job growth for Elementary School Teachers is 12 percent, which is average compared to all occupations. Individuals who are unable to find a job as an Elementary School Teacher may have plenty of other related job opportunities in positions such as substitute teacher, classroom aid, reading specialist or special education teacher.

Elementary School Teacher Salary


Nationwide, Elementary School Teachers earn $53,090 on average. This number can vary, however, depending on how long they have been teaching, the average income level in their area and whether they teach at a public or private elementary school. Elementary School Teachers often earn increased wages upon completing additional education and many years of service in their school district.
