While having a rudimentary knowledge of how to organize a lesson plan, the aspirations to prepare students for the future, and the endurance to manage the hardships of the education industry, we also look for the following in our candidates;

Education Requirements:
  • Bachelors degree and above from an accredited institution
  • Meet the requirements of a professional teacher at a school, district and state level
  • Single subject teaching credential if there is a specialization in a single subject
  • State Certification
  • Relevant teaching experience
  • Basic understanding of current technology



Teachers who excel at their work are the teachers who invest their heart and soul into the subjects they teach. When teachers convey passion about their subjects the students become more involved in the content and in turn learn more! No matter what level of education, Whether it is elementary, high school or collegiate teachers must care about their subjects, otherwise the students will lose all respect for the teacher and interest in the subject.


Even though teachers are ensuring todays students are tomorrow’s future, their paychecks do not reflect the hard work that comes with this responsibility. It is necessary for educators to have motivation other than a paycheck to make sure they are in their classroom before the tardy bell.


Being a teacher is challenging because you have a room full of students who all learn at different rates and in different methods. Often times there are a few students who need extra attention in the classroom and it is how a teacher handles these types of students that determines how persistent they may be. The more a teacher is vested in the success rate of a student the more persistent they will be considered.

Understanding and Patience:

Teaching is challenging in numerous aspects but one of the most challenging aspects is the amount of patience it requires. As a teacher you will know your subject content inside and out but your students will not. The process involved in making sure this changes requires a lot of patience and understanding.


Your student’s personalities are going to be as diverse as the subjects you teach. Some personalities will be more trying and free spirited and it is important to remain firm and rigid with these students. A qualified candidate is an individual who must be willing to discipline students when it is necessary


Energy or enthusiasm in your work is must with teaching. This particularly applies to educators at the preschool, kindergarten and elementary school level. The age level of students in elementary school require your enthusiasm as you clean the glue out of their hair, play with them at recess, and teach them their ABC’s.

Problem Solving:

As previously mentioned the personalities of your students will be as diverse as the subject you teach. This means at least two of your students personalities will clash. Candidates should be prepared to handle unruly behavior in the classroom.

Organization and Flexibility:

Teachers are well rounded and educated individuals but that does not mean they come to class and decide randomly what they will teach in class that day. Teachers have lessons plans for their students and these lessons plans are planned in advance. Organizations allow teachers to execute their plans in the most effective method possible. Teachers must also be able to adjust their plans based upon their students preferences.

Verbal and Communication Skills:

A Candidate must be able to communicate with their students. There are different types of learners in a class of 25-30 students. There are different types of learners such as verbal and visual learners. To accommodate these types of learners you will need to say your content out loud and write it on the board.


A successful teacher must be able to adapt to multiple situations. Most importantly adapting to the idea that you will spend nine months with these students and they will have to move on to the next grade. After this a whole new classroom full of students will await you and you will have to repeat this cycle over again.
