The Future is Bright for Early Childhood Educators

Posted On Jan 15, 2021

If you’re considering a career in education but want to ensure that the future job market is stable first, rest assured that the world will always need qualified early childhood educators. Despite previous warnings of a teacher surplus in the past, many are retiring, leaving a great demand for eager, motivated and dedicated individuals like yourself to fill in the gaps.

If you’re still on the fence about whether or not education is the right career path for you, here are some things to consider:

Job Security

As mentioned above, there will always be a high demand for qualified educators, making the decision to become a teacher a wise investment when it comes to job security. The job outlook for early educators remains strong and stable, with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates an increase in job opportunities between 2018 to 2028.

Perfect Work Schedule

Another hidden perk of becoming a teacher is the schedule. There are many benefits to working in a school environment, such as getting many holidays off as well as extended breaks. Unlike most corporate professional counterparts, teachers get a rare opportunity to get some much-needed time off, to relax, recharge, and spend time with loved ones.

The Ability to be Yourself

In many professional settings, people are told to tone down their personality or blend in with their co-workers, so they don’t stand out, but teachers are actually encouraged to be themselves and use their unique personality traits to help inspire, lead, and motivate their students to learn. Unlike a stuffy office job, preschool teachers get the added benefit of an exciting, fun, and colorful work environment. What other job allows you to draw, paint, sing, and mold animals out of clay?

Opportunity to Inspire

Almost everyone can remember at least one teacher who inspired them or made a difference, and you’ll get that same chance to inspire your own students after becoming a teacher. Preschool teachers are one of the first educators in a child’s life, putting them in a sacred position of instilling a lifelong passion for learning.

Improving Your Own Mind

It may surprise some to learn that teachers are also continually learning along with their students. Teachers must learn how to create appropriate, innovative, and creative ways for students to grasp new skills and concepts, and there’s always some level of adapting that needs to occur in order to help individual students reach their personal and academic goals.

Giving Back to the Community  

The majority of teachers navigated towards a career in education because they truly wanted to make a difference. When the going gets tough, it’s important to always remember your purpose and reasons for wanting to become a teacher, such as making a difference, inspiring others, and giving back to the community. After all, you are playing a part in shaping future generations and setting them up for a lifelong love and appreciation for learning. Sure, there will be those occasional difficult moments or days, as is true in any profession, but the benefits and rewards more than make up for it.
