Why Teaching? Why Belmont?

Why Become a Teacher?


Many communities across the nation are facing a major educational challenge as there has been a growing shortage of qualified teachers. The latest estimates for the Federal Department of Education suggest that America needs as many as 2.5 million new teachers over the next five years. Because of this, jobs for people with a background in teaching are expected to rise significantly in the coming years. Those people with a passion for learning and a desire to share their knowledge and energy with others will find teaching to be a fulfilling career.
