Regardless of the specific subject you instruct, teachers should also have foundational knowledge in education. They should be familiar with different pedagogies and teaching methods. You can learn these things by majoring in education, taking education classes or enrolling in master's level teacher education, but that’s not the only way. Teachers who didn’t major in education in college can study pedagogy and teaching methods on their path to licensure or even on the job from the more experienced educators they work with.
The most important thing to know is that every student is different, and you should be adaptable enough to acknowledge this and teach in a way that is conducive to the education of all students. Learn more about teaching specific subjects by browsing the links below:
