What does it take to become a teacher?

If you are passionate about education and the well-being of children, you should teach. If you are one who believes they can lead and inspire children, you should teach. If you are brave and willing to move beyond traditional teaching methods by being at the forefront of modernizing education, you should teach.

Every state has different requirements for becoming a great teacher. However, in most states, it is required that candidates hold at least a Bachelor's Degree, complete a Teacher Preparation Program, and pass the required state examinations.
