Elementary School Teacher in Early Grades – Kristin Shaeffer

The reason I may be interested in pursuing a career as an elementary school teacher is because educators are in high demand. I have the skill set to be of service to my community in this way. I have been a stay-at-home mom for 27 years. I am ready to give back in the way many great teachers have. My current career goals are to help children and families improve their home lives and future potential. I also will give according to my expertise, which is working with children. I would also LOVE to be a general music teacher in the elementary school, but in many schools in my area, there isn’t funding for a separate teacher for music.
