My Path to Become a Teacher
Transcript of My Path to Become a Teacher
A teacher is a role model and educator to students and the people in their community.
Teachers are looked up to and depended on by students everyday.
The first teachers in America taught grades K-12 in one classroom all at one time.
All teachers were men until the demand for more education and classes became so high that women started to become teachers.
How Teaching Evolved:
Elementary teachers in Iowa make about 32,000 dollars per year.
Because of the amount of money that I would make, I would have %15 of my pay check taken by the government for taxes.

The best place for me to begin my teaching career is a small town in Iowa.
The cost of living in Iowa for a single adult is about $10,890. It is not as high as it would be to live on the coasts.
