While most people today will switch careers throughout their life, when it comes to being a teacher, most are in it for the long haul. An astounding 91 percent of all those who responded said that their desire to work with children weighed heavily in their decision to choose a career in teaching. Seventy-seven percent of them went on to say that this choice was a positive and desirable choice, not something they did as an alternate or due to lack of other options.
