Mathematics Teachers

High School

If you are interested in pursuing a career as a math teacher, prepare yourself by taking classes in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus in high school. If available, take advanced math classes in statistics, probability, and logic. Classes in speech and English composition courses are also helpful to develop your communication skills. You should also explore extracurricular activities that will further challenge your math skills, such as joining a math club. The more involved you are now, the better you'll look to future employers.
