“Our students are the messages we send to a future we will never see.”
If you are interested in a job that is so meaningful it just might be THE most important job, consider teaching. If you want a job that is intellectually demanding, consider teaching. If you want a job that will make you laugh every single day, consider teaching. If you want a job that allows you to pay the bills, get health care and build towards retirement, most teaching jobs (and maybe a little extra on the side) will get you there.
Teaching is not for everyone. In fact, to be a teacher really requires hard work and serious persistence. But more great people need to become teachers because there is so much work to do – especially in our country’s underserved communities.
