Why Become a Teacher?

  • Affect the Future via Student Potential and Successes
    Teachers mold the future each day in the class. “…reaching that student that others have written off as being unteachable”
  • Job Security
    Teaching shortages, especially in mathematics and science, ensure your marketability in the workforce.
  • Teaching a Subject Helps You Learn the Subject
    You will never learn a topic better than when you start teaching it. Thinking about Medical school in the future?
  • Staying Younger and Daily Humor
    Being around young people everyday will help you remain knowledgeable about current trends and ideas. It also helps break down barriers.
  • Autonomy and Creativity
    Your classroom is your domain and a place that for you to be creative and autonomous each day.
  • Conducive to Family Life
    Regular vacations are built into this career, including two weeks off during the winter holiday season, one week for Spring Break, and two months in the summer. Also, if you have or plan to have children, the school calendar will typically allow you to have the same days off as your kids.
