Teacher Appreciation Week &Why it's a Good Time to Become a Teacher

May 4-8 is Teacher Appreciation Week. There is no doubt that teachers have a profound effect on students' lives and are often a children's first role models other than their parents. But according to the National Commission on Teaching & America's Future, more than 1.7 million teachers will retire during the next 10 years and across the country this is creating a teacher shortage.

That's why, for Teacher Appreciation Week, Dr. Pamela M. Roggeman is available to discuss the many benefits of teaching and why it is a good time to become a teacher. Dr. Roggeman will discuss the current teacher shortages, how individuals can start a teaching career, and how you can best support your children's teachers She will also share new survey data that will help viewers decide if teaching is right for them, including; why teachers chose the profession, what they enjoy most about it, and how they want parents involved in their classrooms.
