Why be a teacher?

STEM educators are in high demand and often earn extra stipends. Their work and vacation schedules are family-friendly. Most importantly, teachers make a positive impact on the lives of young people every day.

JacksTeach provides students the opportunity to explore the profession of teaching in STEM fields. Through this program, you can prepare to earn a secondary teacher certification at the same time you are completing your four-year degree in mathematics, chemistrybiology or physics.

As you move toward a possible career in teaching, you will receive ongoing instruction in lesson design, classroom management, and science and mathematics content. Explore your opportunities and practice your skills through a specifically designed set of courses.
