As a Middle School teacher, you’ll be working with students at the start of their exam journey. Although their end of high school exam is their biggest exam, it’s never too early for the middle school students to get ready. Expect to be working with 30 plus students in a typical classroom environment, educating them about English as a second language, or your subject you’ve studied to teach as a professional teacher.
Middle School is a fantastic time in a student’s life to learn English as a second language, as you can make fun, active and engaging content around learning the language. Expect to be teaching the same lesson to multiple classrooms and planning your lessons around your teaching time. Students in Middle School range from 13-15 years are full of energy and enthusiastic about gaining a global perspective. So, remember, teaching middle school students is more about teaching English as a second language, as they’re ready to understand your perspectives, culture and passion for the English language.
