History education is an important part of a solid educational background. History teachers teach students about past events and the way things and people have evolved into what they are today. They teach students about the various cultures and prepare them to make informed decisions about the future.


Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a history teacher do?

History teachers teach students about the various in-depth parts of history. They provide students with a broad exposure to historical events and time periods and include an abundance of dates and facts on a variety of types of history such as ancient, U.S., European, African, Asian, and world history. History teachers are responsible for creating and presenting lesson plans, evaluating students’ performance through homework, assignments, and tests, and communicating with students and their parents about progress and concerns. They create a fun and meaningful learning environment using a variety of teaching techniques and materials such as textbooks, outside resources, and visual aids. Like all other teachers, history teachers are responsible for maintaining safety and order in the classroom and enforcing rules.

What kind of training does a history teacher need?

History teachers need at least a bachelor degree in education with a concentration on history or social science. Some history teachers have a previous history background and complete additional teacher training courses to meet the requirements of their state. All states require public school history teachers to be licensed. Private school history teachers usually do not need a license. Licensing requirements vary by state, but typically include at least a bachelor degree and completion of an approved teacher training program, supervised teaching experience, and passing a written examination. History teachers must complete annual continuing education courses to maintain their certification. Continuing education also helps history teachers stay current on the latest teaching techniques, improve their skills, and advance to higher level positions.

What are the prospects for a career as a history teacher?

Employment of all school teachers is expected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 12% from 2006 to 2016 (1). Population growth and an increase of student enrollments will drive job growth.

Job prospects are expected to be good especially in less desirable urban and rural school districts. Job openings will also arise from the need to replace history teachers that retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do history teachers make?

As of October 2009, the average annual salary for history teachers is $45,000; average annual salaries vary among location, employer, degree, position, and experience (2).

A career as a history teacher is an excellent choice for people who have a strong interest in history and enjoy teaching students about the subject. History teachers must be able to present historical concepts in fun and interesting ways and be able to inspire trust and motivation in their students. Excellent communication, organization, patience, creativity are essential characteristics of history teachers.
