Why Should I Become a Teacher?
Every teacher makes a difference. Whether you illustrate subtraction to a 2nd grader, help a high school sophomore discover cell mitosis or guide two middle school students through conflict resolution, you’re influence will be felt for a lifetime.
You can see it in their eyes, that “aha” moment when a quadratic equation comes into focus or they first write that tricky polysyllabic word in a sentence. Washington students are like flints, ready for the sparks to fly!
Positively impact the world
Knowledge comes from understanding. Your guidance, facilitation and example engender the future citizens of their world.
Your true calling
Are you someone who thirsts for information, perspectives and intriguing dialog? Teaching sounds like your destiny.
Why should I Teach in Washington State?
Teaching young Washingtonians provides an opportunity to work with a curious and creative population while surrounded by one of America’s most dynamic landscapes.
“Washington has an ocean, desert, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, rainforest and all these amazing things. The people are like that too – the diversity is so great and awe-inspiring. Why would you want to teach anywhere else?”
