Clement, Mary C.
Educational Horizons, v89 n2 p24-26 Win 2011
College teaching can be as rewarding as a K-12 career and, whether in elementary school or college, students deserve good teachers. College professors who prepare teachers can have a tremendous impact on K-12 classrooms for decades into the future. However, career paths vary widely, and the path to teaching in higher education is as unique as the individuals who teach there. In this article, the author discusses how teachers should move from a K-12 classroom into higher education.
