Learning Center Experience
People choose to become teachers for many different reasons. Maybe
you’re a teacher and for the last couple of years, you’ve been reflecting on
that decision, or perhaps you are considering a career in education and are
still weighing the pros and cons.
Teaching is a great career choice, and offers so many great benefits:
Young Minds: Perhaps you had teachers growing up who made an
impact on your life, and you dream of doing the same for other children. Paying
it forward is a great reason to be a teacher. Or, if you are someone that
dreams of making a difference in the world, teaching children is a great way to
accomplish that goal.
Happiness: Some people truly feel they are meant to be teachers. For those people,
teaching is a highly fulfilling career choice. Building relationships with
students, watching them grow, and in turn continuing to learn and grow yourself
can be a very rewarding way to live.
Perks: Remember how exciting summer,
winter, and spring breaks were when you were a kid? Guess what, when you’re a
teacher, they’re still that exciting! Having three months off during the summer
is a huge perk of being a teacher. You can use your free time to take
trips, advance your own education, or cultivate other hobbies. Another benefit
is that if you have children, your schedules will match up, especially if you
are in the same district as them.
Security: There’s a reason why so many teachers have been at the same school for
years: tenure. Though state laws vary, once you earn tenure in a certain school
district, your job is usually fairly secure.
