Preschool Teacher

Odds of Hanging On

Working as a preschool teacher doesn't have to be the top rung of your early childhood education career. The field is constantly growing with new developments in teaching and research. The more you know about emerging curriculum, the stronger you will be as a respected childcare professional. You can become the director of a childcare center, or you can work (somewhat) independently as a Special Ed provider (who makes about $53k a year).
