#PHSfit Career of the Day: Conservationist

A conservation scientist studies elements of the ecosystem in order to manage its development, to limit erosion of natural resources, and to support all types of life on earth. They mostly work outside, collecting samples to be analyzed, observing growth and animal behavior, with a clear objective to limit human beings' impact on the world around us. The scientists often work with lobbyist organizations to advocate for their causes, which are at times in contrast with other corporate or governmental interests. If this career is interesting to you, you will undoubtedly enjoy AP Environmental science and explore majors like ecology and biology.

#PHSfit Career of the Day: Child Care Worker

Across the nation, millions of parents entrust their children to the judgment of child care workers at all times of day, so that they can balance family and work responsibilities. Being a child care worker requires a commitment to the successful development of the children you work with, and can be incredibly gratifying if you can maintain your patience with a clientele that has naturally not developed communication skills or their own patience or perspective. At a minimum, you need at least a year of training and supervised experience, and most states require accreditation or certification to maintain a child care center, either for young children or for before and after school.

#PHSfit Career of the Day: Art Educator

Art teachers are very important in the educational development of students. In addition to inspiring budding artists at the middle and high school level, art teachers are also incredibly valuable members of the elementary school faculty. Art educators help students learn to understand their world in visual terms and how to express themselves in nonverbal ways. In order to be an art teacher, you will need to earn at least a bachelor's degree in art education, which requires coursework in both visual art and education pedagogy.
