About This Quiz

Middle school is an important time in the development of a student's mind. For teachers, it presents a unique set of challenges that are synonymous with the age group. Unlike elementary school students, middle school students are around the very confusing and emotional age of puberty. With their minds on fire, it can be difficult to retain their attention and to hammer in the knowledge they need to succeed in life. 

Instead of examining your qualifications, we are going to see if you have the mentality it takes to become a middle school teacher. Can you handle the sass and confusion that comes with the age of your students? Step up to the blackboard and answer our questions like a classroom full of students is watching. After we see what you're made of, we will let you know if you can hack the middle school teacher's life. 

Whether you currently work as an educator or you're considering your future career, this quiz will help gauge your aptitude for delivering quality education to bright students with dynamic needs. Do you think you are cut out for it, or will you need to consider a different age group? Let's find out before it's too late!
