Maybe teaching is a new or lifelong passion. Maybe you've already discovered a natural gift for explaining ideas and concepts. With budget cuts to important school programs, and a growing population of adults returning to school for job training and career shifts, educators in traditional and non-traditional classroom settings are becoming more valuable every day. As a teacher, students of all ages and ability levels look to you for guidance, instruction, and inspiration for their own journeys.

In addition to being classroom teachers, education graduates can pursue careers as coaches, tutors, administrators, or education directors.
