Welcome to Leadership Studies in Education and Organizations
There is no better way to pursue your passion - whether it's literature, mathematics, science, art or baseball - than by teaching it to others. Learning in the classroom is not limited to students; teachers themselves continually learn about their subjects and discover new insights. They get paid to immerse themselves in the subjects they love and to keep abreast of the latest news, research and developments in the fields that interest them most. Teachers also have the opportunity to kindle the same passion in others. Many teachers find that one of the most satisfying aspects of their job is seeing the spark in a child's eye as his or her passion for a subject grows.
