Teaching Jobs

Teaching Job Overview

Teachers work at the elementary, middle and high school level, and they may also work with kids of a younger age or for a community college, vocational school or private university. They often select a specific topic and teach that topic to kids of a certain age range. Teachers come up with new methods of teaching and introducing new topics and subjects to students. They meet with parents and students to discuss any potential problems. They often continue their education through graduate school and advanced programs. Some teachers work year round, but other teachers have the summers off.

Teaching Job Education Requirements

Open teaching positions usually require that applicants have a bachelor's degree in education from an accredited college or university. Those programs typically involve a high level of classroom learning, but the programs also give students experience in the field through the use of student teaching. Teachers must also apply for certification in the state, which involves the successful passing of a background and criminal check. Some states also ask teachers to continue working on a graduate degree after accepting a position.

Teaching Job Market

As long as there are schools and students interested in learning, there will be a need for qualified teachers. As the population changes, the number of positions open in this field will increase at the average rate of growth across all industries. Less than 53,000 new teaching positions will become available between 2012 and 2022. Those who lack a college degree and those who want to work on a part-time basis may find positions as substitute teachers or assistant teachers are better for them.
