Why Teach?

Students often report feeling a calling to teach—to inspire and educate young minds, make a difference in their communities, and fuel positive social change. There is a sense of meaning, excitement, and joy that comes with the field naturally.

But that’s not all to this career path. Teachers and educators benefit from a field that is growing in demand and, in fact, in critical demand in STEM subject areas as well as overall in cities like Loyola’s local Baltimore, Md. The field also boasts incredible career benefits—such as work/life balance, continuing education and professional development, mid-career salary potential, retirement benefits, time off, loan forgiveness, opportunities for supplemental income, and many more.
