Question: I'm wanting to major in Creative writing or English and minor in Italian. Do I have to move around my plan to accommodate a major in education or can I just get my teaching licence after college. Will getting a teaching licence after college decrease my pay or chances of getting hired?

This depends on where you want to teach because every state has different qualifications. I know what you need to be a high school teacher in WI so I'll use their requirements as an example. WI requires that you have a bachelors degree, you must major in the subject that you want to teach and minor in teaching. Minoring in teaching is not negotiable.

Several states will hire teachers without an education degree as long as they have a degree in their subject. Most of these teachers are required to complete additional coursework to make up for the lack of an education degree, but the course work isn't very difficult or time consuming. I think a lot places prefer an education degree, but teacher shortages cause schools to make exceptions. After all, just because a teacher didn't major in educatin doesn't mean that he/she cannot teach.

To be a math teacher you would major in mathematics and then also get middle school and/or secondary teaching certification. There are a group of classes you take for certification, sort of like a minor or emphasis. After you take some classes, you'll take a basic skills test to be sure you're on track, then before you graduate you'll take a content area test to get your endorsements (this would be in math and anything else you're interested in doing; there are separate CATs for middle school and high school level teaching). Then you do observations and student teaching before you graduate with a degree in mathematics. Once you are certified you can test for endorsement in another subject, so a lot of students planning to teach will choose an unrelated minor so they can do multiple subjects.

are you able to circulate back to college? you will get a Masters degree in trouble-free training. Or Secondary (intense college), with an English endorsement. in case you could no longer circulate back to college, you could attempt to get a job in a school or an after college software. boys and females club, as an occasion, is an after college software that's administered relatively like an trouble-free college. you will get an experience form of equivalent to lecture room coaching there. you additionally can look at getting a job at a school the place they'd relatively help pay for college, so which you would be able to get your coaching degree. one extra ingredient - look at becoming to be a replace instructor. call the college districts and discover out what the abilities are. In some components, you do no longer want an training degree to be a sub.

You should be able to major in English teaching. Also a teaching license is required for all public teaching jobs. Private schools do not always require one but the pay is usually less if they don't.

i remember once i took this summer reading class (i was only 14 at the time) these two girls probably around 16 and 17 chose not to do the homework required for the class but still showed up on time. the professor confronted them in front of the whole class.... the teacher told them they needed to do their homework or get out of his class room because it was disrespectful... they argued that their parents paid for this class... the professor didn't care. i mean if it doesn't bother you than hey it doesn't bother you.... but if they are that old they should know better then to put their heads down on the table. I've only fallen asleep twice in all four years of high school and it was in two different classes and i was just SO exhausted, it wasn't disrespect for the teacher. but i paid attention every other day in class and was a good student. if they are doing this everyday and are giving you a "don't give a $#it" attitude then i wouldn't give a $#it about them... if they really care about the class or weather they passed or failed they would pay attention.... once or twice with a head down is okay but all the time... that's inappropriate.
