  2. 2. Our communities always need educators - the need for teachers is timeless and universal.Teaching is a profession that attracts people who want to make a difference in the lives of all children and who are passionate about learning. It is one career you can be confident you will always have a purpose. The Georgia Department of Labor estimates employment of K-12 school teachers is projected to grow 12% over the next six years due to projected increases in enrollment and declines in student– teacher ratios.The largest demand is in high-needs schools in urban and rural areas and high demand subject areas (i.e., Math, Science, Special Education and English as a Second Language). Schools need professional educators to improve the quality of education. Earning a Master of Education or Master of Arts in Teaching deepens your knowledge of content, pedagogy, educational philosophy and instructional technology. Teachers with advanced degrees can be promoted to school leadership and curriculum development positions, become mentor teachers and obtain terminal degrees.
