New teachers switch careers to try hand at education

The new school year is in full swing, and it’s not just students who are getting in the groove.

So are a handful of brand-new teachers throughout the Bossier school system who decided to abandon their old careers in order to try their hands at shaping young minds.

One such newbie is Adam Rabo, a Louisiana Tech graduate who used to do marketing for a downtown Shreveport law firm but started teaching math this year at Parkway High School in Bossier City.

“(Teaching) is something I’ve thought about several times in college and since college,” said Rabo, who a few months ago looked into TeachLSUS at LSUS, one of several programs offered locally that are geared toward getting professionals who already have noneducation-related bachelor’s degrees certified in teaching.
