Hey,
I'm not a teacher or anything, but i've got friends who want to go into that profession and I can tell you a bit of what they've done. In my highschool you can do a course called peer teaching, where you can go into a class, and help the teacher out, and teach a couple lessons or so, and see if you like it. There's also co-op, where you go out of the school and into another school to teach with a younger grade. I'm not sure if you've got those kind of courses at your school, but if you do, try it and see if you like it! If not, most of the work to become a teacher is in university/college.

I'm not a teacher, but it is a great profession. Not to mention, it is one of the most needed, at least in many parts of the U.S.

Have you ever thought of volunteering at an elementary school or preschool as a student aid? It could be for a couple of hours in the afternoon and you could help out with younger kids. I think almost any kind of volunteering that involves helping and/or teaching children will help you on your way to becoming a teacher. Besides that, you could speak to some of your teachers at school and see if they have any advice for you. Also, definitely keep your grades up in school and major in Education when you enter college (Education is a very broad and flexible major, so there are many fields within an Education major to choose from).

How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday,
When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way,
How did Ghandi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all,
Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall,
It's to give; I guess I'll pass it on

Teacher-in-training here

The best thing you can do right now is to do as the others say and volunteer in different grade levels (though for higher levels, you'll probably have to wait until you're older), and see what level you'd most like to work with. Knowing this when you eventually get to college will be EXTREMELY helpful, as changing majors can screw everything up (I've had to stay at my first college an extra year because I accidentally spent my first year in the wrong major, though that's more because I didn't look closely enough at the choices for majors on the application ^_^). If you decide you'd like to work with preschoolers, check and see if the college you'll end up going to has a daycare center on campus like mine does, because you could get a job working as a Teacher's Aide while you're taking classes, earning you money and experience on the side.

Good Luck!
