Becoming a Teacher "A good teacher, like a good entertainer first must hold his audience's attention, then he can teach his lesson." John Henrik Clarke

Whats the work schedule? -- Teachers can work anywhere from 37-42 hours per week (weekdays). Usually 7am-2pm or 8am-3pm. Occasionally Saturdays or Sundays for extra work.

What will the salary be like? $44,904-$47,750. Your salary depends on how long you've taught and the grade you're teaching.

What are some possible issues? You will more than likely have behavioral issues from some students and parents. You may not be able to make ends meet with your paycheck. Students may become too reliable on technology if not handled appropriately.

What are the benefits of being a teacher? Some benefits are connecting with your students, summer/spring breaks, insurance (depends on what the school offers), sharing your passion, and you'll never get bored!

How does this job benefit others? You encourage learning and further the education of others. You can also help students with their personal lives.
