Teaching is considered by many to be one of the most significant occupations a person can aspire to hold. Not only do teachers instruct on various school subjects, but they provide help or education in vocational training, the arts, craftsmanship, community roles and life skills. Teacher degrees in the United States vary state by state. Most states have different teaching certification based on the age group or subject area taught, and all states require at least a Bachelorís degree. There are, however, different majors that will help one obtain a teaching position. They include a general education degree, math degree, science degree, child psychology degree, art degree and others. It is advised to research teacher certification on the particular state in which you wish to teach. There is also a National Board of Certified Teachers that is much like the National Board of Certified Doctors.

Teacher supplies and classroom supplies vary grade by grade and also according to teacher and the school system. All mandatory student supplies are usually supplied by the school, therefore other classroom supplies are usually optional. Some students, or studentsí parents, prefer to provide their childís own supplies, so lists are generally given to parents prior to the beginning of the school year. This website provides a sample list of both teacher supplies and classroom supplies. Teacher supplies, especially, vary according to the individual and this list is meant as a recommendation only.

Drug prevention has also become a part of a schoolís and sometimes a teacherís responsibility. Studies have shown that a high risk period for a childís susceptibility to experimenting with drugs is during school transitions, such as elementary to middle school or middle school to high school. Other times of susceptibility is when a student changes schools, leaving friends behind, especially during the fragile teen years when youth struggles with self-esteem issues. Drug prevention begins with education. There are numerous community-based drug prevention education programs. Two of these, the Life Skills Training and Project ALERT, include educational handouts, lesson plans, phone support, downloadable resources, and posters that were designed to motivate seventh and eighth grade students to not use alcohol or drugs.
