Science teachers instruct students in subject-specific classrooms. They create lesson plans; evaluate student performances; and teach using lectures, technology and hands-on learning experiences. They also model expected behavior to establish and maintain an orderly, disciplined classroom.
Your science teacher job description should detail educational, professional and certification requirements. Because science teachers must develop curricula that fit into established standards, good candidates are detail-oriented. They also should be analytical, as they must assess students’ progress as well as adapt lesson plans for special-needs students.
Your job description also should indicate needed personality characteristics as well as technical abilities. Successful science teachers are excellent verbal and written communicators. They are able to form and maintain interpersonal relationships with students, parents, other staff and administrators.
