There is probably no career more important than teaching and caring for children. The children of today are tomorrow’s leaders. One common misconception is that the only career choice in this field is to be a teacher. In reality, your career options can include being a childcare centre manager, an educational administrator, a school counsellor, an assistant principal or even the owner of a kindergarten.
