Where Am I Going?

My Career as an Elementary School Teacher

I would like to become an elementary school teacher. This career is in the education and training cluster. In this job you must be able to communicate with parents and students, moniter grades, teach your students, and grade papers. The median salary is $53,090 and it is to grow 12%. The work environment is in public and private schools. The work schedule is during school hours as teaching and then evenings and weekends making lesson plans. An interesting fact about an elementary school teacher is that it is a non-traditional career for men.

How Do I Get There

I would like to attend Harding University because I have recently visited the campus and seen how beautiful it is. Also, Harding is a Christian university. In order to follow my plans, I would need to get a bachelor's degree in elementary education. The tiution is about $28,000 a year. The scholarships I would like to apply for are the Arkansas Lottery, my ACT score, and a scholarship to play basketball at the university.
