Why Teaching Is Not A Back-Up Career
There will always be children who need to be educated, providing a steady stream of opportunity for educators. With good benefits and job security in the form of tenure, teaching may seem like a good alternative to less-secure careers in the private sector. Despite such thinking, many professional educators argue that teaching should not be considered as a back-up career. In order to succeed as a teacher, an individual must possess certain qualities and talents above and beyond the academic requirements for the job.
