Your Pathway to Teaching

Education Major

Students standing together

Teaching is an incredibly rewarding profession. As with all careers there will be highs and lows, but when those lows come, it helps to remember not every job can change a life.

“There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child ‘get it’! Kids don’t remember their favorite test, policy, or bad day. Students remember teachers and moments you create with their peers. No other profession has the power to change the world like education.”
Noraa Ransey, Kentucky Teacher and GoTeachKY Ambassador
