Teaching truly is a noble profession! As we know, most people don’t go into teaching for the pay or summers off. Rather, they feel as though teaching is a true calling and they want to make a difference in the lives of others. With this in mind, teachers, like many service profession students, could use a helping hand paying for college. The HelpTeaching.com Scholarship is especially for aspiring teachers who are in high school or college.
