To be a teacher, you must acquire a Bachelor Degree in Education. After which you can proceed to your Masteral or Doctorate degree. To finish the course of education is like crossing a very narrow bridge. It requires perseverance in order to survive. Graduates should pass the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) and will be given a license to teach in public schools. Some years ago, private schools were hiring non – LET passers. So fresh graduates and not yet licensed can grab a job in teaching. But nowadays, almost all private schools are looking for LET passers applicants.
