Secondary School Teachers

High School

Follow your guidance counselor's college preparatory program and take advanced classes in such subjects as English, history, science, math, and government. You should also explore an extracurricular activity, such as theater, sports, and debate, so that you can offer these additional skills to future employers. If you already know which subject you'd like to teach, take all available courses in that area. Also be sure to take speech and composition courses to develop your communication skills.
