Being a high school physics teacher means that you are a commodity. As of June 1, 2006 there were seven teaching positions open for high school physics teachers in South East Pennsylvania. There are now 15 physics
positions open for the 2006/07 school year in the Philadelphia School District alone.
To earn a certification in Pennsylvania a person must complete a teacher certification program at a four year university.
As a part of the curriculum and requirements for graduation a person must take the proper Praxis tests. These tests measure an array of concepts in the field that the person seeks certification.
Information SourceInformation Source This site is designed to
keep educators informed and up to date on everything they need to know about teaching in Pennsylvania. The most important aspect of the website is the information is provides about certification.

Sites For Physics Teachers
Students in High School or College Physics should be able to benefit from these Physics lessons.
These lessons are freely made available to teachers and professors for use as they desire, either on the Internet or in the classroom.
The Universe also cooled rapidly, and experiments with a superconductor support a theory of topological defect formation in the cosmos.
The web provides not only a previously inconceivable wealth of information, but also the potential for experiences which it was previously difficult or impossible to have oneself.
With this potential in mind, the list of sites related to physics and provided below has been compiled as an aid to teachers and students wishing to try out virtual, "hands-on" experiences in physics.

Sites For Physics Students
This site allows students to make their own practice tests.

One of the most helpful things that allow students to understand concepts in Physics are pictures and animations.

Through High School Without Taking Physics
1. Most modern technology came from physics.
2. Most branches of sciences contain principles obtained from physics.
3. Physics classes can help polish the skills needed to score well on the SAT.
4. College recruiters recognize the value of physics classes.
5. College success for virtually all science, computer, engineering, and premedical majors depends on passing physics.
6. Physics classes hone thinking skills.
7. The job market for people with skills in physics is strong.
8. A knowledge of physics is needed to understand music, art, and literature.
This site offers free live homework help from teachers. Students can ask direct questions about their physics homework and get immediate feedback.

This paper has covered a vast amount of information for anyone who is interested in teaching physics, currently teaching physics, or learning physics. I fall into the category of people who are interested in teaching physics, that’s why I choose this as my topic.
