Working in education can be an immensely rewarding career, but you don’t have to be in the classroom to reap the benefits. If you love working with kids, but you’re more interested in the administrative side (or counseling, information technology, social work, speech pathology, or behavior therapy side) of school, caring, passionate professionals like you are needed in academics.

Note: not all of these careers require a teaching background, but some time in the classroom might make your life easier and cut down on adjustment time, depending on the job.
