An Online Education Degree Could Put You at the Head of the Class

Teaching is not only a labor of love, but it's a way you can give back to your community through a promising career. Teachers transform their love of subject matter into real-world application for their students. The demand for teachers has never been greater, and online degree programs are a great choice for students with full-time jobs, families, or both. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of post-secondary schoolteachers is projected to increase by 12 percent over the coming decade; that's about as fast as the national average for all occupations between 2006 and 2016.

Teachers have a variety of professional options for employment. Some choose to enter basic subject areas such as math, science and English. Others become special education professionals, providing rich learning opportunities for at-risk and developmentally disabled students. PayScale reports the starting annual salary for teachers at $33,915. That figure varies with geographic location and department specialty.
