A teacher teaches things from basic life skills to exotic arts. A teacher can be a mentor, a parent, a friend, or a hired professional. Teachers at schools generally teach the basics such as math, science, social studies, language arts, physical education, health, and social skills. For teachers who teach in grades preschool through 12th, they are responsible for them and the students they teach are in their custody. Grading papers and planning lessons and helping students with problems of all kinds are a few things teachers do as well. They usually require a degree if they are to work as a paid school teacher, and not just a tutor.
