Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree Requirements | Academic Policies | Students | RISD

Noah Johnson's insight:
This article shows the difference between a BA ( Bachelor's degree in Arts ) and a BFA ( Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts ). The BFA is considered one of the most prestigious art degrees. However you need a lot more credits to achieve a BFA than you do a BA. Through my previous research, and even an interview with an art teacher, you don't need a BFA to become a high school art teacher. Though with a competitive position, it might be beneficial to obtain the higher degree.

High School Teacher Salary Information | Best Jobs | US News Careers | Art Teaching | Scoop.it
Find out more about the average high school teacher salary and learn where the best-paying metropolitan areas are for a high school teacher across the country.
Noah Johnson's insight:

This article has statistics from the BLS showing the top, low, and average salaries for High School teachers in the US. After seeing these statistics and comparing them to the average salaries for College professors, I'm surprised to say there's not that big of a difference ( depending on your definition of 'big' I suppose ). While there is a very significant difference, I originally expected it to be larger, especially given the additional teaching involved with becoming a professor.

Noah Johnson's insight:

This article tells about the shortage of teachers in certain areas. It mentions that even though the economy isn't doing great there is still a demand for teachers. After I finished reading this I realized that Washington wasn't listed, while I'd prefer to stay close to home I would be willing to move to achieve my goal. And just because these areas have a higher demand for teachers than Washington does ( if that's the case ), doesn't mean there won't be available jobs in Washington.
