Teacher jobs vary according to school type, grade and level of the job. There is a big variety of subjects to teach, from the classics of maths or sciences, to more artistic and differentiated subjects such as arts, sports or sociology. Especially in primary schools, teachers have to be flexible and teach across a range of subjects at the same time. But administrative tasks, out-of-school activities and important key competencies as self-motivation or stress tolerance are also important points. As a conclusion, teaching methods and daily tasks will depend mainly on the age of the pupils, the curriculum knowledge, the school's policies and the teacher's personality.
