Many students often ask their Geography teacher,

“Sir/Miss, What can I do with Geography? What kind of job I get if I take Geography for College/University? A teacher? Is there anything else?”

Interesting questions. I think at the beginning, Geography teacher should open up their mind about how fun being Geographer. Being a teacher is one of the greatest fun. However, Geography had a lot of opportunities to offer.

That’s why, you can see the video that I link:

This is the time when the teacher should open up the relevancy of what students learn in class with their future.
