    Whichever one you are likely to do best at.

    To be a teacher you either need a teaching degree or a degree in a national curriculum (ish) subject and a 1 yr PGCE.

    OK to be a teacher you will need:

    5 GCSEs A*-C including maths and english (and sometimes science).
    3 A levels at a half decent grade.

    After your A levels you have a choice -

    you can either commit to spending 3/4 yrs studying to become a teacher (this is the most recommended way to become a primary school teacher)

    or

    You can spend 3 yrs studying one of the subjects you did at A level (or something similar which is included in the national curriculum (eg you can often study psychology without doing psychology A level)...and *then* spend one year on a post graduate course (called a PGCE) where they will train you to become a teacher.

    On a completely random note: you can become a montessori teacher without doing A levels.
