Chalk Talk: Thinking about a Career in Education
Have you decided that you’d like to become a teacher? Now, you have to choose what type of teacher you would like to be. The first decision involves whether you want to teach young (elementary) or older (secondary) kids. Some people have a clear preference of which age of children they would like to work with, but others make this choice based on content areas. If an individual knows they want to teach kids but does not have a strong desire to teach a specific subject, they may opt to go the elementary route. On the other hand, if someone has a strong affinity for, say, math and knows that they want to teach math, they will have to teach at the secondary level; teaching candidates who want to work with middle and high school students will have to choose a content area to specialize in. Teaching candidates usually have by their junior year of college to make a definitive decision about the specific teaching degree they would like to pursue.
