Career Growth within Education

July 22, 2019

When considering your future career, one obvious point that you should take into account is professional growth within your chosen field. If you are going to be stuck with a certain salary without the opportunity to reach beyond that mark, you would be wise to look elsewhere.


Unfortunately, the field of education is often seen as a dead end; where "those who can't do, teach." Obviously, teaching isn't just babysitting: there is a lot to it! Teachers are required to not only know and understand the content, but how to teach it, so that their students can learn. Teaching truly makes a difference. But for those that major in education in one form or another (Special Education, Elementary or Early Childhood Education, Physical Education, etc.), the question remains: once you are a teacher, is there any way to climb the ladder of success (and hopefully positively impact your salary in the process)?


The answer is a resounding yes. Teachers have opportunities to grow in both their realm of influence and in regards to their compensation. Teach.org does a wonderful job of laying out some the possible career paths that teachers can take. Check it out!
