1. STEPS TO BECOMING A TEACHER EARN A BACHELORS DEGREE:
All states require K-12 public school teachers to have at least a bachelor's degree. Kindergarten and elementary school teachers must hold a bachelor's degree in elementary education. Though a preschool teacher might begin work with an associate degree, there is a push toward a bachelor's degree requirement for this grade level as well. Some school systems require K-6 teachers to major in a content area such as math or science. High school teachers are also often required to have majored in a particular subject area.
2.ENGAGE IN STUDENT TEACHING:
Gaining classroom experience is a must for teachers. Aspiring teachers must have a certain number of hours of supervised educational experience in order to sit for licensure; the amount of experience required depends on the state. Student teaching can be performed during the pursuit of the bachelors degree, completed during an internship, or finished during the months after graduation before moving into full-time employment.
3 GET CERTIFIED OR LICENSED:
Those who intend to teach in public schools must be licensed or certified. Certification typically follows grade level, with separate licensures for preschool through third grade, first through sixth (or first through eighth) and seventh through twelfth. Regulations vary from state to state, though, so it is crucial that prospective teachers check their home states specific rules. Keep in mind that all states require the completion of a teacher preparatory program and a minimum amount of supervised teaching experience, which is typically obtained through student teaching. Most states also require applicants to successfully pass a general teaching certification test as well as tests in the individual subjects they will be teaching. All states offer alternative routes to certification for prospective teachers who hold a bachelors degree but lack the education courses necessary for immediate certification. These alternative programs often allow candidates to begin teaching immediately under the supervision of an experienced teacher. Candidates are awarded full certification upon completion of the alternative program. Private school teachers are not required to be licensed by the state. However, many private schools require their teachers to hold valid state certification. Whether required or not, all teachers should obtain the appropriate license or certification of their state so that they will not be limited in their employment options.
4 CONTINUE WITH HIGHER EDUCATION:
Virtually all public school teachers are required to complete a minimum number of continuing education or professional development course hours in order to maintain their state license or certification.
Though teachers can begin their work with a bachelors degree, many public schools encourage their teachers to earn a masters. Those who earn the masters degree might also see the possibility of higher pay, greater job flexibility and easier advancement into administration positions. Further, teachers who wish to be recognized as standing atop their profession should consider obtaining National Board Certification, a voluntary, advanced teaching credential that goes beyond state licensure. To obtain National Board Certification, teachers must complete a rigorous peer-reviewed certification process that includes submission of videos of their teaching and student work samples as well as pass a three-hour examination.
