Preparing for Teacher Education School

If you are considering becoming a teacher, your post-secondary planning process should begin as early as high school. Since teacher education programs can be competitive, it is important to plan your high school courses accordingly. Admittance to specific teacher education programs is typically in the third year; therefore, you will need to complete pre-education courses. Make sure that you takes courses in English/communications, math, and an array of electives that reflect the area in which you might wish to teach (science, history, arts) to ensure that that you are well prepared for the schools and programs that make your list.

If you are still in high school, and are thinking about becoming a teacher, there are several additional things that you can do to prepare and increase your chances for being accepted into the program of your choice:

  • Undertake to read and study independently. This is a good way to develop interests, expand your knowledge and improve your vocabulary and reading comprehension skills needed for school. This will also help you if admission requirements include an interview, since you will be able to impress the committee with the knowledge you have built up of terms and concepts specific to this area of study.


  • Admissions committees are often interested in a student's extracurricular activities and personal qualities. Consider joining (or starting) school clubs including athletics, musical activities, and arts and drama, especially if you have excelled in one or more of these areas. This is also a good way to develop demonstrated leadership skills which are an important aspect of a competitive application.


  • Work experience--paid or volunteer--can also increase your chances of being admitted and is an achievement often regarded highly by teacher education admissions committees.
