Elementary teachers have to be able to work with children, parents, and other teachers. This means that you must establish relationships and care for others. You have to be accurate and complete with all details of the job. Any errors or oversights might delay a student from learning. You have to be able to go back and forth between two or more activities without becoming confused. If the teacher is confused then how do you think the children will respond? During activities, you will have to check how well a student is doing something and manage the time of self and others. Also you have to know many areas in different subjects. Teachers in elementary schools must know the basics in math, reading, geography, English, history, and plenty of other subjects.
