The Benefits of Becoming a Teacher
Are you thinking about becoming a teacher? Wondering how it will benefit you? In this blog, we will explore the reasons why being a teacher could be the right career path for you.
By becoming a teacher you will help to inspire current and future generations. Pupils look up to their teachers as role models, and the influence you have over them is crucial in how they will learn and grow as individuals.
You will probably remember certain teachers from your own school days who stood out to you. The teachers you looked forward to lessons with and who taught you well. Similarly, children will look up to you in this way which can be a very rewarding experience.
Even better is that you get to do a job that you are passionate about every single day, teaching really is a vocation, not just another job!
No day is ever the same
Every day is different when teaching! You will be required to teach a wide variety of different pupils from a range of backgrounds and a whole host of personalities. This means no lesson will be the same.
The school day requires a variety of tasks to be completed. This helps break the day up so you are never bored! Marking work - which may be considered a mundane task - can be made enjoyable through the variety of students and answers you are submitted.
The working day & holidays
Did you know that most teachers get more holidays than the average job? Long summer holidays and regular half term breaks allow teachers to have more quality time with family and friends.
Being a teacher means you are on the same schedule as your son or daughter. Even though you’ll have lesson planning and book marking to do outside of work hours, you’ll be in the comfort of your own home.
With teaching, there is always room for personal development. Being a teacher provides you with a lot of consistent training meaning you are always learning and expanding your knowledge.
With this learning experience there are always opportunities to advance in your career. Whether it be moving up from teacher to head of department or chasing a job for headteacher, there is always progression available.
