Inside Chemistry Teacher Education

Chemistry teachers are responsible for providing their pupils with a scientific understanding of Earth, its chemical make-up and the things that can affect or change it. Many colleges and universities offer degree programs in chemistry teacher education. The type of degree earned will depend on whether teaching high school or college chemistry is desired. Bachelor's and master's degree programs can train enrollees for a career as a high school science teacher, while doctoral degree programs can prepare them for a career as a college chemistry professor. Regardless of the academic level they wish to teach, educators need to have comprehensive knowledge of chemistry theories and concepts so that they can exude confidence and motivate their students to learn.

After completing an education or chemistry program, students need to pursue state licensure to begin teaching. While the need for a license varies by state, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that all U.S. states require public school teachers to be licensed, while many private institutions may not require licensure (www.bls.gov). Common requirements for obtaining this credential include a bachelor's degree, student teaching experience, and acceptable certification test scores.
