Fun Fact: Nassau, NY provides their elementary school teachers with an average salary of $90,560. (The highest salary in US) There are many requirements for being an elementary school teacher. Some are before you can become one, and some are while you are one.

While you are: You must be licensed, have a clean criminal record, have continuing education, etc. EMPLOYMENT OPTIONS It’s pretty self explanatory that you could be hired at any elementary school, public or private.
You could also use your education to home-school children at the elementary level. WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY LIKE? A typical day for teachers is rather hectic for the most part! They must get up early and get to school on time, usually at least 30 minutes before the students in order to have time to prepare for the day. They have to make sure that the kids are doing what they’re supposed to, and handle any issues there may be. They have to make sure to teach everything that they are supposed to, and be careful to make sure every kid is learning the information. If not, they must help the kid to better understand what’s going on. The school day is hectic! After school is over for the day, the teacher usually has to grade papers and begin preparing for the next day. They get an early start and a late ending. THE BEST AND WORST PART “The best part of my job is the feeling you get when the kids show that they have learned something, and summer break!”
“The worst part of my job is the low pay, so many meetings, and paperwork.”
-Roxanne Myers JUST A LITTLE MORE “I chose teaching because I've always loved working with kids. Even in high school, I taught Sunday school and Bible school.”
“I only recommend teaching if you really like kids and can survive on the low income.”
-Roxanne Myers THE NUMBER ONE THING “Volunteer in a class before you decide. The expectations of teachers are constantly being increased and that includes workload.”
