What does a Teacher do?

Teachers develop curriculum and lesson plans, and present those lessons to their students, individually or in groups. They track the progress of their students and create reports to inform parents about their progress. Teachers are responsible for maintaining a safe and respectful classroom environment in order to optimize student capabilities and develop their love of learning.

Teachers are required to have a Bachelor's degree and a teaching credential. In order to obtain a teaching credential, a minimum number of hours in education coursework must be completed and an exam must be passed. Requirements may vary by state and type of school. Many teachers choose to advance their career by entering into administrative positions, like prinicipal or superintendent.
