Education required for a high school teacher is a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university followed by the obtainment of a license to teach. The bachelor degree should be from a teacher education program and relevant to the area you want to teach. If you have a degree in other fields, most states allow for alternative routes to licensure. But in all cases, you need to have a bachelor’s degree.
Licensure is not required for teachers in private schools in most States. Licensure is required if you want to teach in a public school. Usually licensure is granted by the State Board of Education. The license is very specific in terms of the level you want to teach. For example, you need a specific license to teach at the secondary school level (high school), which is different from the license needed to teach at the elementary school level. The testing required for the license involves display of basic skills such as reading, writing, and teaching, and requires you to display knowledge in your chosen area in which you want to teach.
