Employers look for teachers who have good communication skills and can inspire trust and confidence. They prefer teachers who can motivate students and understand their educational and emotional needs. They prefer teachers who can deal with disruptive children and provide firm but fair discipline. Employers look for teachers who are energetic, organized, dependable, patient, and creative. Skills in music, art, drama, and storytelling are also helpful.
Some employers in private facilities prefer to hire preschool teachers with a recognized child development credential. Some prefer applicants who have taken college courses in early childhood education. However, employers also value previous work experience in a child care setting. Some schools require their own specialized training for teachers. Public schools nearly always require a bachelor's degree and state teacher certification.
Some employers prefer to hire teachers who are bilingual. Teachers who can speak Spanish are in great demand in some parts of the country.
With additional training, kindergarten teachers may move into other jobs. Some of these positions include school librarian, reading specialist, or guidance counselor. They may also become administrators or supervisors. However, competition for these positions is strong.
Chances for advancement are limited for preschool teachers. Some may advance to supervisory or administrative jobs in large child care centers or preschools. Often these positions require more training, such as a bachelor's or even a master's degree. With a bachelor's degree, preschool teachers can become certified to teach in public schools. Some preschool teachers set up their own child care businesses.
