How is it being a high school teacher in USA

  1. Jul 30, 2007 #1
    Hello. I have heard many things about high school teaching in USA schools. I would like to know if any of the high school teachers can please guide me how is it to be a high school teacher in school in US. Also if at all I want to knw abt the syllabus are the physics high school and secondary text books available online which i can refer to.

    Also can I go for college teaching if I have done my Masters from India. Is any special exam needed for college teaching? Or if there is any scope of research fellowship/assistantship possible.

    Please do guide me. Thank you
