Question: When I grow up I really want to be a preschool teacher but I dnt know what to study. But I Do know I have to do 3 years at a University according to my school’s counseler.
Answer: The traditional route to becoming a public school teacher involves completing a bachelor’s degree from a teacher education program and then obtaining a license. However, most States now offer alternative routes to licensure for those who have a college degree in other fields. Private school teachers do not have to be licensed but still need a bachelor’s degree. A bachelor’s degree may not be needed by preschool teachers and vocational education teachers, who need experience in their field rather than a specific degree.
Education and training. Traditional education programs for kindergarten and elementary school teachers include courses designed specifically for those preparing to teach. Most programs require students to perform a student-teaching internship. Graduation from an accredited program is not necessary to become a teacher, but it may make fulfilling licensure requirements easier.
