Be the difference. Teach.

If you think you've got what it takes to be a teacher, consider becoming part of the solution to the teacher shortage. Remember that by becoming a teacher you will become part of a noble calling and a noble profession. Rick DuFour said that "...as a teacher, you can affect eternity because it is impossible to tell where your influence stops..."

Why Teach? Why Not?

Answers are as easy as A, B, C:

Ably influence dozens of students every day

Be the difference to students, as you make a difference to them

Challenge young minds as you fulfill your sense of commitment to community and nation
