Harvard professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter suggests that the happiest among us are those who are solving the toughest problems and “making a difference” in people’s lives. If contributing to the betterment of the world is indeed among the keys to happiness, then it’s no wonder that teachers express a deep sense of fulfillment and pleasure in the work that they do day in and day out. Still need a nudge? Here are some excellent reasons to quit your job and become a teacher:

“The best teachers are those who show you where to look but don’t tell you what to see.” -Alexandra K.Trenfor 

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” -Nelson Mandela 

“A good education can change anyone, a good teacher can change everything.” 

“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” -Margaret Mead 

“Having hope will give you courage.”
