Would You Like to Be A Teacher?

Have you ever been in class and thought “I’d like to be the person standing at the front of the room helping kids learn?” Well you can be, and this is a great time to consider a career in teaching. You may have already heard that there will be many new teaching jobs in upcoming years, especially in the areas of math, science, and special education.

Teachers work in very stimulating and challenging environments, and have rewarding careers helping young people reach for their goals and achieve success. The average salary for beginning teachers is about $48,000.00 per year.

Many Universities and University Colleges in BC offer teacher education programs, but to enter you usually require English 12, and a senior level math, social studies, and science courses. Don’t forget to start your career planning early so that you have all the courses you will need later.
