Physical Education Teachers
Physical fitness is growing in popularity in the United States. The President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition continues to encourage children and adults to be fit. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for elementary and middle school teachers will grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2022. Slower-than-average growth is expected for high school teachers. Job opportunities should be better in schools in inner cities and rural areas than in suburban districts.
