Employment Prospects


Approximately 961,600 secondary school teachers and 627,500 middle school teachers, as well as 53,850 postsecondary math teachers, are employed in the United States. Math teachers are needed at middle schools and high schools, including parochial schools, juvenile detention centers, vocational schools, and technical schools. Some Montessori schools are also expanding to include more advanced courses. Though rural areas maintain some schools, most institutions are in towns and cities. Teachers can also find opportunities in "charter" schools, which are smaller, deregulated schools that receive public funding.
