Head Start Preschool Teachers: Jobs or Professions

Head Start Preschool Teachers: Jobs vs. Professions

Head Start preschool teachers defined a profession as a place where you go to earn money, but that you enjoy what you are doing, while defining a job as just a place to go where you earn money.

When asked if Head Start preschool teachers saw their positions as a job or a profession, many of the teachers, both lead and assistant, stated that they viewed their position as a profession.

Some preschool teachers stated that they had days where they viewed their position as a job and other days where they viewed it as a profession. In other words, keeping preschool teachers happy by supporting them, asking about their needs, and trying to fulfill those needs should help to retain preschool teachers.
