Increased teaching shortages during the 2020-2021 academic year have heightened the demand for quality teachers heading into 2022. If you have been considering a career in teaching, now is the ideal time to work toward that goal. At MVNU, we offer Bachelor of Elementary Education and Master of Education programs to help students pursue this rewarding career path.
Educators who enjoy helping children may find a career as an intervention specialist highly rewarding. In Ohio, educators with valid standard teaching certificates or licenses can request supplemental licenses in intervention specialist fields while working towards standard licensure in that area.
Elementary school teaching is one of the most important professions, instilling fundamental skills and building a strong foundation for future learning. It’s also a field poised to grow. Projections from the Ohio Bureau of Labor show the state will require 287,652 teachers by 2026, an increase of more than 11,000 jobs.
The job market is far different than it was 50 years ago. For the workforce today, it is not unusual for an adult to switch careers multiple times. Dramatic, mid-life career changes are on the rise. According to CNBC, 49% of middle-aged workers have made a job shift in recent years with positive results to their work-life balance and overall contentment¹.
