High School Teacher Job Description

Requiremnts:

High school teachers must have a bachelor’s degree. In addition, public school teachers must have a state-issued certification or license, which may require an academic background in the subject(s) they will be certified to teach.


Pay:

The BLS reports the median annual salary for high school teachers was $55,050 in 2012.


Description:

High school teachers work for schools that enroll students from grades 9-12. They typically instruct students on a single subject, such as English, math, science, history, language or art. To do so, they must plan curriculums, which may cover basic topics in algebra to advanced information on psychology.

High school teachers can be influential in students' lives, since students will apply what they learn to their future endeavors. Though teaching can be rewarding, high school teachers may have challenging jobs when dealing with unmotivated or disruptive students. Stress can occur when facilities aren't up to standards, workloads become difficult to manage and teachers work more than 40 hours per week.
