If you’ve been considering a career in teaching, recent cutbacks and economic conditions may have left you wondering about your prospects.
In fact, if you have the passion for education that makes a great teacher, and you’re willing to go where the jobs are and teach the most in-demand subjects, earning an online teacher certification may be the smartest way to launch a lifelong, fulfilling career.
For example, if you’re willing to work in a city center or in a rural community – rather than in the suburbs – you’ll find the demand for qualified teachers is quite high. Similarly, if you go into teaching special education, math, science, or English as a second language, there are still a number of jobs available.
And if you’re already a teacher – or you’re in another career but want to make the leap to education – earning an online master’s degree in education can prove an extremely valuable career move.
