Focused Career Choices: How Teacher Educators Can Assist Students with Purposeful Career Decision-Making throughout a Teacher Education Program
In this paper, the authors illuminate aspects of career choice and conflict for teacher education students seeking initial Licensure. They also address foundational knowledge on career decision-making. The authors review studies to understand why people decide to pursue a career in teaching, despite the high turnover in this profession. The authors conclude that the literature reviewed indicates that direct career decision-making is either not being frequently conducted within teacher education programs or it is not seen as an important aspect of research. This paper argues that a teacher education program should be such an inviting and trustworthy place, where students can engage in quiet or in conversation to ensure that they are pursuing the career that is right for them.
