Secondary Education (SAE)
High school teachers help prepare students for life after graduation. They teach academic lessons and various skills that students will need to attend college and to enter the job market. Education is any form of learning or transmission of information that can occur in formal settings such as classrooms or informally through experiences with a person’s environment as a whole. The training of future formal educators includes establishing and fostering skills related to curriculum formulation, instruction, classroom management, educational administration, student services, and human development. Students can focus on early childhood, elementary, exceptional student, secondary and university higher education. Educators may also wish to specialize to teach a certain discipline, such as social sciences, language arts, math, visual arts, foreign language, music or the natural sciences, based on their interests and level of proficiency.
