Professional Development Programs
Nearly every state requires teachers to complete a certain amount of continuing education in order to maintain their license. Beyond this mandatory aspect, continuing teacher education has the potential to help advance one’s career prospects and increase their salary. These new career opportunities may include becoming a school librarian, administrator, or instructional coordinator. Or students can take courses that enable them to move into a more in-demand field such as math, science, or foreign language, where they may be able to earn more. Highly qualified teachers in all areas can also often command greater salaries.
