Why teach?

A career in teaching can be many things. New and experienced teachers bring their lived experiences into the classroom and learn from the lived experiences of their students. Some of the benefits of teaching include:

  • Experiencing a variety of people and situations that keep your days interesting.
  • A career path with a competitive salary (especially compared with entry-level positions in other industries).
  • Leadership and training opportunities to develop your strengths and reach your career goals.

What kind of contribution can you make?

The need for effective teachers continues to grow. Become a teacher and shape the next generation of learners and doers. Make an impact by:

  • Becoming a young person’s favorite teacher, an impact that can last a lifetime.
  • Cultivating students’ strengths and giving them opportunities to grow and develop.
  • Playing a part in closing educational inequities.
