Education Careers - Future Outlook
Education careers have come a long way over the past century. There was a time when one teacher would instruct all of the neighborhood children in big group lessons. Students would share textbooks (if any were to be had), and most of the classes would focus on basic arithmetic, English, and remedial studies. Contrast this with the education careers of today. You can attend university classes online. There are schools and programs for just about every interest under the sun: beekeeping, journalism, flower arranging, rocket science, reptile studies, Arabic.
Pursuing a career in education
Options are great. Students can study whatever they choose, and teachers can teach whatever they enjoy. Pick a passion, and go teach it. It's almost that simple….almost. First you need to complete formal study in the appropriate field. So ironically, you must become a student again before you can become a teacher. But these extra hoops are worth it.
Perks and rewards
Teaching is one of the most satisfying and rewarding careers out there. You spend every day opening up minds, sharing passions, probing questions, and exploring new territory. And because you'll have chosen your particular passion, you'll be doing what you truly love. There's nothing more rewarding than following your bliss and showing others how to get there.
Teaching is a broad category with many potential disciplines. Some positions will obviously grow more quickly than others. Continuing education, for example, is a rapidly expanding field whereas university professorships are fairly limited. And there is always a need for high school and elementary school teachers; especially if you have a background in math and science.
Ultimately, you just have to follow your instincts. If you're dynamic, passionate, and qualified, students will always come. So the key is selecting a discipline or subject that truly matters to you. Positions will always be there waiting for you.
