HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER
The main task of a secondary school teacher is to present and engage students with a given curriculum. Teachers are also called upon to aid the development of students’ interests and abilities by suggesting extra work or advice. At given intervals teachers will need to give a detailed appraisal of their students’ development. Staff meetings, educational conferences and workshops liaising with parent, community and business groups are also part of the job. While most teachers have six teaching hours a day, there are extracurricular tasks, such as assisting with sport, school concerts, excursions and special interest programs.
