Career Research Paper
Someday I will have to go to college and know what classes I'm going to have to take to have a successful career. To do this I will have to know what I want to be and if it fits my lifestyle. I researched a career that I think I will like and the career that I chose to research is a high school P.E. teacher.
I chose to research this specific job because I am very competitive and I would like to become a high school volleyball coach so this career will help me to find a coaching position much easier than if I didn't have a job at a school. I don't think that being a P.E. teacher would ever bore me and I could have fun with it. I think this career will be perfect for me and I would love to teach high school kids to play sports.

If I were to want to make more money, I would have to hit the books again and go back to college. A teacher with a bachelor's degree make about $30,939 a year and a teacher with a bachelor's degree and experience make about $46,069. A teacher with a master's degree gets paid about $34,025 and a teacher with experience and a master's degree makes about $56,404. So the key to making more money as a teacher is experience and getting a master's degree.
As a teacher I would work with a team of teachers and other educational staff.
