Step 3: Encourage

We need well-qualified candidates in the field of education to give us what we need in our classrooms. 

We know that student-athletes are great listeners, leaders, mentors and coaches. Those qualities and characteristics make great teachers.

However, when evaluating any career, there are other factors to consider. As part of the Go Teach project we have provided a simple survey to help student-athletes take that first step to identify whether or not they would make a great teacher and if they should talk to their academic advisor about a career in education.
