Teacher Information
September 24th, 2017

Teachers are committed to educating students of all ages and preparing them for the world. This is an immensely satisfying job as you get to see your students' progress every day. A teacher's exact duties may vary depending on the type of institution they are working in and the age of the students they are teaching. In general, teachers create and teach age-appropriate lesson plans for their class, test students regularly, assess students' progress and prepare them for the next year's class.
The educational qualifications to become a teacher vary slightly depending on the age of the students you will be teaching. A high school diploma and relevant training may be sufficient to become a preschool teacher. High school teachers and postsecondary teachers at colleges are required to have a master's degree. A Ph.D. in the relevant field can give you the edge when applying for a college teacher's job. Teachers must love being in the company of children. They must also have strong problem-solving, instruction, interpersonal, communication, writing and creative skills.
At your interview for a teacher's job, the interviewing panel will ask you a wide range of questions to assess your suitability to the role. They will want to know why you chose to become a teacher and what are your strengths and weaknesses. Answering smartly and confidently will reassure the interviewers that you are the right candidate for the job. Are you looking for a place where you can find these answers listed?
