History Teacher Jobs
History Teacher OverviewHistory Teachers generally work at the high school level to teach students about the history of either the United States or the world. History Teachers perform all of the usual duties of a high school teacher, including planning and teaching lessons, grading papers and preparing students to take standardized tests. They use their passion and enthusiasm for history to help their students memorize key historical facts and to analyze these facts with their critical thinking skills. Some History Teachers may also take their students on field trips to museums, centers or monuments to learn more about various historical events.
History Teacher Education Requirements
Like all high school teachers, History Teachers are required to obtain a bachelor's degree or higher. They may earn a general education degree with an emphasis in history, or they may obtain a history or social studies degree and then take additional classes in teaching methodology. All teachers are required to become licensed in their state. Employers may prefer applicants who have some job experience in a history- or teaching-related field. Some school districts may also want their teachers to work toward earning an advanced degree or to complete additional classes and certifications to keep their knowledge current. Teachers are generally required to have a background check and to become certified in CPR.
History Teacher Job Market
While there are not statistics available for the History Teacher job outlook specifically, the job outlook for high school teachers in general is 6 percent, which is slower than average compared to all other occupations. With recent budget cuts and a strong emphasis on reading and math skills, the job outlook for History Teachers may be slightly lower. Similar positions include Historians.
History Teacher Salary
On average, History Teachers earn $65,870 per year. This amount can vary depending on the number of years they have been teaching, the school district they teach for and the additional qualifications and certifications they may have earned.
