Career of the Week- Adult Education Teacher

| No Comments

Adult Education Teacher instruct adults and out-of-school youths in reading, writing, speaking English, and math-- skills to equip them to solve problems, improve their job opportunities, and further their education. The instruction provided by these teachers can be divided into three principal categories: adult basic education (ABE), which is geared toward adults whose skills are either at or below an eighth-grade level; adult secondary education (ASE), which is geared towards students who wish to obtain their General Educational Development (GED) certificate or other high school equivalency credential; and English literacy instruction for adults with limited proficiency in English.

In most States, adult education teachers need at least a bachelor's degree, although some programs prefer or require a master's degree. Programs may also prefer to hire those with teaching experience, especially with adults. Many States require teachers in these programs to have some form of license if they are employed in a State or local government-run program. Some States have specific licenses for adult education teachers, while others require a public school teacher license.

Employment of adult literacy and remedial education teachers is expected to grow by 15 percent through 2018, which is faster than the average for all occupations. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average hourly salary of self-enrichment teachers was over $19 in 2009, but the highest 10 percent earned more than $33 per hour. The larger group of full-time adult education teachers can expect upwards of $56,000 per year, according to Salary.com. When added as a supplemental income, monetary benefit and clientele opportunities make teaching adult classes a lucrative hobby.

Career of the Week- Speech Pathologist

| No Comments

Speech pathologist is a therapist who assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing, fluency, and other related disorders. They help individuals prevent or overcome communication problems such as articulation, impaired language, stuttering, slurring or lisps.

In 2005, 47 States required speech-language pathologists to be licensed if they worked in a health care setting, and all States required a master's degree or equivalent. A passing score on the national examination on speech-language pathology, offered through the Praxis Series of the Educational Testing Service, is needed as well. Other requirements typically are 300 to 375 hours of supervised clinical experience and 9 months of postgraduate professional clinical experience.

According to a 2003 survey by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the median annual salary for full-time certified speech-language pathologists who worked on a calendar-year basis, generally 11 or 12 months annually, was $48,000. Certified speech-language pathologists who worked 25 or fewer hours per week had a median hourly salary of $40.00.

Career of the Week- Family and Consumer Science Teacher

| No Comments

Family and consumer science teachers teach students how to manage a home. They teach topics that include nutrition, menu planning, food preparation, clothing care and construction, money management, grooming, consumer awareness, and child development. Some family and consumer science teachers teach at several educational levels. Others teach only in elementary, junior high/middle school, high school, college, or adult education programs. Some teachers specialize in one or more specific subjects, such as clothing or foods.

Family and consumer science teachers also have many nonteaching duties. They may serve as advisers to student organizations, such as the Future Homemakers of America. Teachers also counsel students and meet with their families to discuss the students' schoolwork and career plans, as well as family relationships and other subjects. Others serve as advisers to civic and business organizations. Family and consumer science teachers may serve on education committees and attend faculty meetings.

The Family Education program at the University of Minnesota offers a Master of Education teacher licensure program in Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS). It is possible to complete the program in one year and start teaching the following year. In fact, the need for FACS teachers is increasing in our state and nation due to many retirements. Nearly 100% of our graduates get jobs.
