If there's one line teachers are probably tired of hearing, it's that their chosen career is oh-so-honorable, implying that they're somehow sacrificing something to dedicate themselves to the greater good. And while it's true that a teacher will never make as much as, say, an investment banker, there's still a ton to recommend about working in education. You can take your job nearly anywhere, for one thing--even exotic locations abroad--while getting paid to do something you truly love.
Outside of teaching, there are also plenty of jobs in education's financial and administrative realms, as well as jobs of highly specific focus at law schools and in special education. Interested? Click on, and get your applications (and lesson plans) ready.
