Now is the Time to Teach!
Robust Job Market
The time has never been better to be a teacher and the need never greater. The job market is so robust our students are getting hired before they even graduate.
Benefits and Tenure
Careers in teaching offer competitive benefits including holidays off, such as winter, spring, and summer recess. With the added security of tenure, teaching positions could be protected in NY state after just 4 years.
Make a Difference
Above all, the most important role a teacher has is the difference they make in their students' lives. That impact is everlasting.
Pace-based merit financial aid can be applied to the fifth year within Pace's policy.
