Careers in Middle School Education

As a middle school teacher, teacher's assistant, or curriculum designer, you work in schools, tutoring sites, and education companies.

You will use computers, smartboards, iPads, Chromebooks, and textbooks to produce lesson plans, positive student learning outcomes, curriculum, and test results.

In addition to leading a classroom, middle school teachers interact with parents and participate in ongoing professional development and planning. Many middle school teachers also lead school clubs, after-school events, and other extracurricular activities.
