Learning Center Experience
By Ken Cline, Adjunct Instructor
in the Educational Studies Department
Education is by far one of the most important public service
areas. Each day, millions of children are educated and cared for by dedicated
teachers, support personnel, and administrators. A solid education sets
children up for successful and productive futures. Many skills, such as
reading, writing, and basic math, are essential for people to understand in
order to become good citizens and contributing adults. Without educators, our entire society would
Imagine a society without an educational system. Imagine a
time when children received only a rudimentary education. Those times are not
too far in our past. A formal education is no longer a luxury—it has become a
universal expectation in our country.
Think back; I am sure there are teachers, coaches, and administrators
that helped mold you into the person you are today. Teachers motivate us and open
our eyes to the marvelous world around us. I encourage you to reach out to a
former teacher, coach, or administrator to let him or her know the tremendous
impact he or she had on your life. Education professionals
enjoy feeling they have made a contribution to society. At times, educators may
feel underappreciated and overworked, so knowing that they made a significant
impact in the life of another is an extremely gratifying reward.
Consider a career in the public service field of education. There
are so many public
service career options in the education profession. You can make an impact
in the lives of others that will last for generations.
