Teachers are an invaluable group, educating students on a variety of subjects that become important in later life. Primary school teachers aid in forming the minds of young students, helping them discover a wide range of topics, from mathematics to social science to second languages.
Often required to work with scholars of varying ages – from four or five to early teenage years – primary school teachers must use encouraging styles of instruction to engage students in a particular subject while following an approved curriculum. Though required to evaluate the progress of students, assign work and give tests, teachers must also be able to recognize the individual learning needs students have. In addition to a love of teaching, they should also enjoy learning themselves, as primary school teachers are frequently required to attend conferences and participate in training workshops.

Responsibilities & Skills

The responsibilities of a primary school teacher vary by age group, school curriculum, and subject. While primary school teachers may be responsible for a class throughout the school day, teaching them many different topics, they may also teach a specialist subject to many classes.

An understanding, approachable nature is also important when working with small children.
