About the organization

Recognizing that great teachers are critical for our children's life outcomes and for the fate of the nation, several organizations formed TEACH.org to assist anyone who is considering becoming a teacher.

TEACH.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, launched by Microsoft and the U.S. Department of Education.

Duties

Are you ready to shape the future? If so, leading a classroom could be exactly what you’re looking for in your next career step. Teaching is a rewarding profession where you can have great influence and continue to make a difference in the world, all while building your professional skill set. It is a profession of possibility. As a teacher, each day presents the promise of possibility. To be a teacher is to be a problem solver, a poet, an inventor, a creator, an explorer, and more. Experience the possibility of untangling a student’s understanding of numbers, of awakening curiosities that shift life trajectories, and of creating social change. If you want to make a dent in this world, explore your path to teaching.

Teaching is a wonderful profession for those who are eternally curious and always looking to innovate. The field of education is active with debate and exploration about how to make education more effective, from concepts like Personalized Learning to Instructional Leadership, to ideas about the difference between public, private and charter schools. Thus, as you progress in your career, you’ll have plenty of fodder to keep you stimulated intellectually and challenged professionally.

Qualifications

To be a teacher, you need a few things.
You need a strong work ethic. As a teacher you’ll work hard, yes, but this is a job where your investment is sure to pay off. For every hour you put in, every exam you administer, every lesson you teach, every pep talk you give, you will reap unparalleled outcomes. Your students will light up when they master the subjects you’ve taught them to love. You’ll establish bonds of trust that allow you to influence their lives. And you’ll get to work with subject matter that interests you. Nobody likes to be bored, but don't worry, you won’t have that problem.

You need to have high expectations for all students. If you believe that your students can run a NASA command center, manage a corporate boardroom, thrive in a laboratory, master an art studio, succeed in an operating room—so will they. In the classroom, your influence impacts their dreams and sense of curiosity. Teaching allows you to constantly imagine new and effective ways to reach young minds.

You need a diverse set of skills: leadership, creative problem-solving, and stellar communication, to name a few more. Simply put, the practice of teaching will naturally help you deepen your talents to increase your influence, impact, and professional abilities.
