In education, a teacher is a person who provides schooling for others. A teacher who facilitates education for an individual student may also be described as a personal tutor. The role of teacher is often formal and ongoing, carried out by way of occupation or profession at a school or other place of formal education. In many countries, a person who wishes to become a teacher at state-funded schools must first obtain professional qualifications or credentials from a university or college.
High school teachers must have a bachelorís degree. In addition, public school teachers must have a state-issued certification or license. Most states require high school teachers to have majored in a subject area, such as chemistry or history. While majoring in a subject area, future teachers typically enroll in their higher educationís teacher preparation program and take classes in education and child psychology as well.
Most high school teachers work in either public or private schools. Some teach in public magnet and charter schools. Others teach in private religious or secular schools.
1. There are at least two pros to being an educator. At the top of the list is the fact that you are doing something that will have a positive impact on your students and thus society.

3. The pros to a profession as a teacher is that you get to be around children of all ages. You are able to learn from them just as much as they are able to learn from you. Learning is a continual process which is done by both the teacher and the students. Another pro is the relationships that you build as a teacher with your students, their families, and the school community. June 13th, 2012
