An economics teaching statement is written by a teacher of economics when he applies for a job so that he can give the employer an idea about his goals, work experience, teaching strategies, skills and knowledge. The employer thus gets an idea of how the teacher will tackle the subject and the children and if hiring him will be beneficial to the organization. The economics teaching statement should contain a brief summary of what the teacher has done in terms of studies and work related to the field of economics and description of his interests and ambitions. He must also describe his skills and what methods he will use to get the class interested in this subject.
