School of Education
You can make a real difference as a teacher. There is a sense of accomplishment when you help students learn and contribute to their future.
You’ll be a respected professional in a career field that will always be needed. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics lists teaching as one of the top ten occupations for job growth.
Teaching provides opportunities for advancement, a good salary and benefits. As a teacher, your influence will be far reaching, and you will be proud of what you do every day.
The Florida State Board of Education identified these as “teacher shortage areas”:
- middle and high school level mathematics;
- middle and high school level science;
- all Exceptional Student Education programs;
- English for speakers of other languages (ESOL).
That’s where “TEACHER SHORTAGE AREAS” come in. The programs listed above NEED teachers and sometimes have teachers who are in long-term sub positions filling them who are not actually qualified. Florida educators earn an average of $46,912 (National Education Association).
