My Career Elementary School Teacher

I have always wanted to be a teacher. A lot of my family members are teachers and they love it. I plan on getting an elementary education degree from BYU Provo.


I don't have a specific school I would like to work for, but the Rogue Valley would be a good place to start because I enjoy living in smaller towns and being near family. I went to Mae Richardson Elementary so I want to work there if I end up here.

What WOULD I DO and how?

I would prefer to teach third graders. At this age they begin learning multiplication, division, cursive, and other simple introductory things. My salary would be around $55,200 depending on what school or area I live in. To work here I have to get a degree in early childhood education. At BYU in order to get the degree you have to go to school for three years and then for the fourth year you do student teaching at one of the local schools.

Where do i get my necessary skills?

I interned at Mae Richardson for a third grade class so I got some experience. I also have many younger family members so I have had a lot of practice with kids.

When do they hire?

They hire whenever they are in need of a teacher, whether one quits or retires.

Why do I want to be a teacher?

I have always loved kids and I love teaching them knew things. My internship proved this to me. My mom and some of my aunts were teachers and they loved it, and I also have a lot of cousins that I love to be around. I want to make a change and help others so I think this is a good fit for me.
