Jobs in Education

What better way to work the same hours your child is at school, than to become an educator? From daycare and preschool all the way through college, there is always a need for more teachers. Some daycares hire according to experience and attitude, and not necessarily education.
To work as a teacher for children from kindergarten through high school, each state requires you go through a licensing process. Check your state’s requirements here. You can earn your degree or certification online or in a classroom, and there are government programs and grants that help you pay for your education to become a teacher.

Depending on where you live, whether you teach for a public or private institution, the certifications you earn, and your level of education, you can make anywhere from $20,000 to $70,000 annually as a teacher.
