When a student chooses Secondary Education as a major, the student is preparing to teach in one of the secondary levels designated as middle, junior, and senior high schools. This preparation includes the general education, the major specialization professional education, and psychology components. On the secondary school level, teachers can expect to work with students ranging from grades 6 to 12 and often ages from 12 to 20. The students in these age groups are making many decisions that will influence future success or failure. Therefore, the secondary education teacher’s responsibility is great and varied.
