shutterstock_144566138

This month on our #CoolJob Series, we are highlighting yet another job we greatly admire – the teacher! Regardless of the subject they teach, teachers help pave a bright future for students and help them grow into intelligent, responsible, kind and well-rounded adults. Most teachers spend five days a week with their students and serve as one of the most influential people in their lives. Whether a teacher teaches elementary school, middle school or high school, he/she guides students through a pivotal stage in their development and helps them grow.

Along with serving as great role models and building a bright future for our children, teachers have a wide range of responsibilities. Some of those responsibilities include preparing lesson plans, teaching classes, encouraging students, evaluating student progress and maintaining discipline. After the school day, many teachers continue their work at home. They may bring home tests to grade or continue working on preparing lesson plans.
