Parents can be tough, but the joy I get from my students far outweigh any negatives.
North Carolina is looking for elementary teachers who demonstrate the ability to excel in the field of education by applying professional knowledge in combination with general leadership, teamwork, communication and interpersonal skills.
North Carolina is in the process of creating a merit based pay schedule that will reward teachers for hard work and results as opposed to years of service and educational level. This allows self- motivated and self-educated individuals, who take pride in student success, to rapidly increase their financial benefits. In addition, living costs in the state are 6% cheaper than the national average and home prices are lower than those in most states.
The southern charm, coast and mountains make North Carolina an excellent choice for an elementary teacher.
