What do teachers do?

We’ve all sat in classrooms and watched teachers when we were at school, but do you really know what a teacher does? While it's a popular belief that teachers only work nine-to-three and have many more weeks of holidays than other professions, a teacher's job is a challenging one that goes beyond the classroom.

Teaching is an exciting and rewarding career where you can help transform student lives through the delivery of quality education. A teacher’s role is never boring or repetitive, and includes the following responsibilities:

A teacher’s role extends outside the classroom and into the school community, where they establish and maintain a supportive school environment. Teachers contribute to school planning and objectives, events, and the development of resources.
