    Teaching is the application of knowledge and skills designed to meet the educational needs of the students.

    How and why did you decide to be a teacher?

    Because I like to help and travel and meet new and interesting people from many different countries.

    Did you need any special education or training to develop the skills for your career?

    I needed some qualifications, yes. Both in the language and in teaching.

    What skills are needed in your work?

    Besides the skills needed in the English language, you need enthusiasm and drive, patience and understanding, and a lot of preparation.

    Was there anything you did at our age (12) to prepare for your career?

    I don't remember. I learned a lot from the books that I read. And a lot from the teachers that I had at the time. I learned both from the good teachers and the bad teachers.

    How important was school for you?

    Very. Not only for the subjects that I studied but also for learning from the people I met.

    Is this a field that needs more workers at this time?

    Yes. English is the language of business and of computers so it is important that there are teachers who provide the skills for students to learn.

    What kind of job security does this profession offer?

    That all depends on the company that you work for. Websites such as this give you the opportunity to find out from others, information about the business and the country in which they work.
    Some very interesting questions. You will do very well in your future with such an inquisitive mind.
