A Day in the Life

Having strong leaders to work in this field is vital to the success of our children and community as a whole! To teach Pre-k through 12th grades in Florida, you must complete an approved teacher education program which does require a bachelor’s degree. To teach at the university level usually requires a Ph.D. If you like the idea of education but the classroom isn’t the place for you, other careers include media specialist, guidance counselor, or bus driver.
