Elementary School Teacher

By: Mikayla Dennehey


What I imagine as a typical day as a teacher is going to class every day from around 8 am to 3 pm, and handing out assignments, taking up assignments, and making sure that everybody is on track. Obviously, I have no experience and I don't know the exact schedule my plans will go, but I plan to take responsibility with the kids and help them make their way through elementary.

All teachers are required to have a high school diploma and a bachelor's degree. I plan to get my Master's so I will have even more knowledge and be even more prepared for teaching.

Working Conditions and Earnings & Job Outlook

  • Working Conditions

Teaching requires a lot of time and energy and I don't want to devote that time and energy until I am completely settled. I will need to get used to moving around a lot and staying healthy so I don't miss any days. I wouldn't be able to travel often because I would be busy during the weekdays.

  • Earnings and Job Outlook

The average pay for an elementary school teacher is approximately $53,000. The high pay is $83,000 and the low pay is $35,000.
