Hi Jennifer, The normal path to becoming a math teacher is first, to take all the math courses you can in high school. Then you will need to go to college for four years to study all kinds of courses including at least 10 math courses and classes on how to teach. Whether you teach 1st grade or 12th grade, you will still have to attend college four years. It's just that the classes you take will be different. Near the end of your four years, you will student teach. This means that you're still a college student, but you will be able to practice teach with an experienced teacher as your guide. Good luck with your career goals. Teaching is a wonderful career if you like to help other people learn. - Pat, for the Teacher2Teacher Service
