Subject: Re: how to become a math teacher in elementary school or junior high?
To teach math in a public elementary school, you generally need to teach all other subjects as well and need a K-6 License which is commonly known as an "Elementary Ed Degree". In a private school you may not need the license although it is usually preferred. To teach math in a middle school, you generally need a Teaching Secondary Math degree. This requires calculus and a few courses beyond calculus as well as some education courses.
