Education Major in Physics

Teaching is one of the most satisfying careers that anyone can undertake. .A teacher is an intelligence multiplier, imparting their knowledge, understanding and life lessons to many other minds. Physics teaches are among the most sought after and employable teaching professionals. Physics teachers serve not only their students but the community as a whole by increasing fundamental science knowledge of future scientists and the public in general. Physics students are aware of what a career in teaching involves. The physics teacher serves as a role model for anyone interested in science. First, a teacher must be a scientist with a strong background in mathematics and science. The student must also have a great deal of academic breadth. He or she must be able to interact well with others; must exhibit an enthusiasm for the subject and must have a desire to help young people. It is often said that a teacher is someone who as a student was helped by some particular teacher. If you are such a person, perhaps you will want to consider a career in teaching.
