High school teaching, extracurricular duties demand balance
from U.S. News & World Report
As high schoolers take off after the school day for sports practices and club meetings, so do their teachers, who often coach or sponsor these activities. "For me, this profession is more than just the morning bell and the afternoon bell," says Allen Nichols, a high school social studies teacher at Central Magnet School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He's been teaching for 16 years and also coaches high school cross-country and is a National Honor Society sponsor.
