When exploring career options, talking to someone who knows the job inside and out can provide invaluable insight. With TEACH.org's Talk to a Teacher Program, you can easily sign up for a conversation (via phone or video) with a veteran teacher who is eager to address all of your questions about the teaching profession. 

Gain Hands-on Experience

Another valuable way to understand if teaching is right for you is to get a preview of what it would be like to teach through hands-on experience. You can do this through summer internships, extracurricular activities, or opportunities that you might even design for yourself, such as creating your own work-study experience.
