Being passionate about geography and to see students flourish in environmental and geographical studies, is the Geography teacher's main goal. Geography teachers can apply a whole range of teaching methods, from practical excursions to laboratory experiments. But even in this dynamic classroom, that standard of test, exams, and homework still applies.
Teaching students according to the national curriculum remains important and for therefore Geography teachers, as with the teaching of other subjects, need to pay attention to curriculum matters and national education goals and frameworks. Geography teachers are employed by primary and secondary schools, but usually not by preparatory schools. For the Geography teacher, school hours are fixed, but class and lesson preparation as well as reviewing of student work are after-class responsibilities.

The Geography teacher will also be responsible for monitoring individual student progress through means of student evaluation, assignments and the marking of assignments. A fair level of administration is required: record keeping, drawing up and printing study material, administration of class progress and reporting on this to department head teacher.
