Career Opportunities

Few professions offer the opportunity that teaching provides to contribute to the formative years of people's lives. Today, more than ever, the job of preparing young people for happy, productive lives in a demanding and ever-changing society is taking place in the classroom.

The teacher shortage of recent years means that employment opportunities are abundant. In addition to the public sector, private business is beginning to take interest in on-site child care facilities and tutorial services. Talented teachers in all fields are, and will continue to be, in great demand.
