The job of a teacher requires a balance between people skills (with plenty of good communication and patience skills) and knowledge of your teaching field. Most teaching jobs involve a fair deal of student teaching or lecturing, which normally takes place during mornings until early afternoon. For tertiary education, teaching jobs can extend to full days and even after-hours. School teacher may be involved in sport, arts or culture activities. Teaching jobs also involves a fair deal of administration and paperwork, and this can include evaluating class progress, monitoring student progress, and preparing class and tutoring material. A teaching assistant is usually more involved with preparing tutoring material while the head teacher is involved with curriculum planning and teachers meetings.
Teaching jobs are available at primary, secondary and tertiary educational institutes. Presenting classes, assisting students, explaining study material, and administrative duties are the usual daily responsibilities. Subject knowledge is particularly important; the usual subjects taught by teachers include languages, sciences, mathematics and arts. To be the popular teacher, you need good communication, interpersonal, management, and motivational skills. Being highly organised will simplify your teaching job while having an open personality will be loved and appreciated by the students!
