bellefast Posted December 10, 2013 Share Posted December 10, 2013 Hi all, I am in an education program PhD program. I want to teach and research on children and language, but I do not want to get a certificate to teach children. Looking at jobs for the future, I see that they want 3-5 years of teaching at p-12 level (I am not a certified teacher) and I have a year as an instructor in geography and world cultures for K-3rd grade children. I plan on teaching pre-college writing for 9-12 grade students through my institution, but not through a public school (I plan on doing this for about two-three years). However, this is only in the summer. Also, I am not sure I can teach during the school year (for places that will take me) for research reasons. So my question is, do you think this is considered teaching experience even if I do not have my teaching certificate? Even if I only can teach in the summers? I know it might seem like a silly question, but I just am not sure. If I need to get a teaching certificate, then I assume I would do it when I get my PhD through an alternative program so that I can teach in private, public or charter schools that will take me. But, I will try not to have to do this because my I love research and only want to do that. Thank you all! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
