Why Teach?

According to the American Federation of Teachers, "new teachers overwhelmingly say they love what they do.  They say it allows them to contribute to society and help others.  And they would choose teaching again as a career, if they had the choice.  If you have a genuine interest in helping children realize their dreams, and want to play a part in improving our society" then teaching might just be right for you.

Teachers are also lifelong learners, staying up-to-date in their fields.  Teachers are able to be creative in their work and every day is different.  Teachers not only convey information, but inspire a love a learning in their students.

"If you want to make a difference in the life of our nation, if you want to make a difference in the life of a child, become a teacher. Your country needs you."
- President Obama, 2011 State of the Union Address

Why Teach STEM?

According to the White House (2013): "We have many great schools, excellent teachers, and successful students in America.  But there are also troubling signs that, overall, our students should be doing better in math and science.
