Teachers help shape the minds and futures of children and adults, most typically through the application of lesson plans, homework and projects that are part of an approved course curriculum. Traditional educators are usually graduates of a four year university and have successfully completed a credential program, masters degree or PhD. Successful teachers are most often people who gain satisfaction in seeing others succeed, have the patience to help students of varied skill levels and needs, and have the ability to deeply learn a subject matter (whether a grade level or a specific topic).
The career path for most teachers involves teacher in training programs, teaching assistant roles, and eventually results in independent teaching/instruction. As teachers gain experience they might choose to move into administration (e.g. a Principal) or move into higher education or research roles.See Job Listings Get Job Alerts
