Teaching is an incredibly rewarding yet taxing career. Despite preconceptions that teachers get every holiday off, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
The reality is when you become a teacher your days will stretch far beyond the average 9 ‘til 5. And your holidays? Well, you’ll be too busy prepping for the next term to sit around and do nothing.
That being said, as a teacher you will have the power to help the next generation to flourish, grow and succeed.
