Teaching is a challenging job with many unique frustrations, but the rewards of teaching are numerable. Some of the many benefits include the following. ¦Experience the Joy of Making a Difference Teachers get incredible joy in seeing the difference they make as students gain new insights, become more interested in a subject and learn about themselves. E very day, teachers mold the future through impacting their students views and und erstandings. Teachers foster creativity, develop character, give students lenses with which to view the world and provide students with the skills they need to reach their potential and lead productive lives.

A teacher m akes a difference in the world by enabling each of his or her students to fully maximize their talents, imagination, skills and character. ¦Enjoy Interpersonal Interaction Teaching science provides those people who want to work in science the ability t o do so while also enjoying a high level of interpersonal interaction. Teachers interact with their students, other teachers and community members regularly. Ma ny students decide to pursue teaching over other science careers for this person al interaction. ¦Benefit From Variety Many people cringe at the idea of doing a job that involves repetition of a spe cific task over and over.

A day of teac hing when you do not laugh at least a couple times will be quite rare. ¦Have a High Level of Autonomy While required classes have mandated curricula that teachers are expected to fol low, it is the teacher who decide what will happen in the classroom each day. Te achers teach their curriculum in very different ways depending on their knowledg e, personality and beliefs. Not many jobs provide an individual with so much roo m to be creative and autonomous each day. ¦Spend More Time With Your Family One of the great perks of a teacher s schedule is that it matches up with a child s school schedule.
