Did you know that teachers in the United States rate their lives better than all occupation groups, trailing only physicians?*
In this workshop we dug into data many students and faculty find surprising about the teaching profession. We also shared strategies and resources for communicating the facts about the profession so that students have accurate information about their career prospects. In addition, strategies were shared that include how to talk to students about the profession, a listing of venues for reaching students, and recommendations for sharing the facts at your institution. All materials are professional quality, research-based, and have been extensively user-tested.
