Why a Career in Education?

It is obvious when considering a career is to think carefully about what really motivates you. You might find it hard to get rid of the idea of “what pays the most” or “what is most secure,” especially in today’s economy. However, it’s important to first discover your passions. This can open doors to careers that you might not have considered. Once you have that foundation, you can start fine tuning your search for the right career. You may be surprised at how you can fit your passions into a new career.

A good place to start is a self-assessment focused on your interests and talents.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you have a passion for learning that often has you seeking more information about things?
  • Do you enjoy working with students whether they are children, young adults or adults?
  • Do you have the ability to easily describe things to others?
  • Do you receive great satisfaction from helping others learn new things?
  • Do you have good oral and written communication skills?
  • Do you enjoy working collaboratively with others who love learning?
  • Do you enjoy challenges and ever-changing opportunities?
  • Do you want to change the world?

If you answered 'Yes' to all or most of these questions you would probably enjoy teaching.

 The challenges are exciting, and the rewards are priceless. Few accomplishments in life can measure up to the smile on a young boy’s face when he first realises that he can read. So, if you want to inspire and instruct the next generation,

 choose teaching.
