    With the world changing around us every single day, our choices, decisions and actions have all acquired a dynamic state. The same dynamism is seen to be persistent with our career choices as well. We as millenials are constantly on the lookout for job opportunities that not only provide us with a steady stream of financial support, but are unique and characteristically rich enough to encourage and challenge us to do better. One of the professions that is proving to be constantly dynamic and growing in opportunities is the noble profession of Teaching. However, now the question rises why you must become a teacher?

    Have you always wanted to teach? Are you looking for a change in your career? Are you looking forward to start your career with a job that extends you enough scope to grow both professionally and personally? In case that the answer to any or all of these questions, is in a yes, one of the best professions for you to opt for today, is that of a teacher or a trainer.

    Any time someone suggests there is a single 'millennial' identity, you can write off everything else they've said as drivel.

    Really? As a teacher I would argue that the profession, in England, is becoming the polar opposite of this and increasingly a job suited to a malleable automaton.

    Unless, of course, the opportunities referred to are getting oneself out of the actual classroom as fast as possible and into senior management positions. But there's not quite as much of the idealised 'Mr Chips' style nobility in that ambition is there.

    Ah...the Millenials. No daily changing world or dynamic state for the choices, decisions and actions of us old farts then. Even though we are already teaching - not just idealising, pontificating thinking about it. Phew!

    I actually feel disappointed whenever I hear that one of my former students has gone into teaching.

    Why is the choice between teacher or sports footwear?

    If you're a teacher you can't afford expensive sports footwear

    Yeh, us millennials have it tough like that.

    The word "pay" would have sufficed.

    These words would have been better to have been omitted altogether.

    So what are the 5 reasons?

    5 reasons to teach?
    1. You've got an otherwise worthless degree.
    2. None of the jobs avaliable to you pay enough to move out of your Mum's, but teaching nearly does.
    3. You're skint and the bursary would be useful.
    4. You can't think of anything you really fancy so getting paid to try out teaching be OK for a year - defers the inevitable.
    5. How hard can it be? I know some real dimwits who are getting nearly £30K and all those holidays.

    No, one word never ''suffices'' when you can put in five words, sound extra super clever and continue on the epic climb of the ladder to the heady heights of .... I dunno... where does the ladder go?

    Armstrong and Miller did a comprehensive study of reasons to go into teaching. This is one of them.
