A career in the teaching comes with a built-in degree of job security and portability. Unlike other fields, highly qualified teachers are in demand regardless of how the economy is doing -- and they're needed from coast to coast.
But you don't have to pull up stakes to pursue your career. This summer, there are more than 300 teaching vacancies in and around Wichita -- and even more throughout the state of Kansas.
High-demand disciplines in Kansas include math, science, English, foreign language and special education. A license to teach each of these disciplines, with the exception of special education, can be obtained through the successful completion of an undergraduate degree in that from WSU's College of Education. With a teacher's license, plus nine hours of special education coursework, you can begin teaching special education on a provisional license. To become a fully licensed special education teacher, a master's degree is required.
