You are here
You love to learn, lead, and be around people. You can take a concept and explain it from multiple perspectives so anyone can understand. As a kid, you probably made your siblings and friends play school or had an inspiring teacher who made a difference in your life. Teachers have the opportunity to influence and help chart a positive course in the lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of students over the course of their career. If you’d also like to inspire others in this way, choose a career in education.
