Nelson Mandela said, “The youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow.” Teachers make a measurable difference in their communities and students’ lives by mentoring and shaping the minds of future generations. Over the course of an educator’s career, the average teacher will affect over 3,000 students, as stated in Education Week.

You love to learn.

Educators have a passion for learning and sharing their knowledge with others. Many teachers earn additional teaching certifications like the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), Gifted and Talented Education, and Special Education. Experienced teachers can become cooperating teachers who help mentor and advise students majoring in education and/or first-year teachers to help them transition into the profession.
