What is a Teacher? - A teacher is the person who assists students in acquiring knowledge. They usually work in schools, but also in private tutoring agencies, and independently, using their subject matter expertise and training in pedagogy to break down and deliver knowledge in any field to students at all levels, from kindergarten to college.

The field of education can be broad, ranging from teachers and administrators to librarians and counselors. As a basic requirement, educators are required to have a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree. Before you can become an inspiring teacher, you must be certain that you have a strong educational background.
