A Career Goal as a High School Teacher
By: Charlie Ward
Day to Day
On a day to day basis a teachers hours are pretty set and their route is very much the same, although what they are teaching each day may differ a lot. High School Teachers hours are from 7:30 A.M. to 3:30 P.M. (maybe later depending on the day) High School teachers make the lesson plans for their different classes and then teach them to High School students.
Being a teacher has very little physical demands. The hardest thing would be correcting all the homework and tests, and dealing with snotty, disrespectful arrogant, high schoolers. And co-workers also.
The Average salary for a High School teacher in Minnesota is $53,680 (19th highest in the nation) That salary will start lower and increase over time depending on how long you are there and can also increase if you get your masters degree ect.
