Postsecondary Teacher - History Professor

Bell Curve

1
5%

You have been written up for insubordination for the third time. You may not agree with everything the administration says, but too bad. You're history.

2
25%

You are in the fourth year of teaching history at a small college in the Midwest. There is no History degree offered, so your classes are taken mainly so students can earn a Humanities credit.

3
50%

You are just a few years away from tenure as a History professor at a large university. You've told your joke about John Hancock and the three-fingered monkey about a thousand times, but you still find it funny.

4
75%

You have achieved tenure as a History professor at Harvard! You really are the shiznit!

5
95%

Same deal—you're tenured at Harvard—but you have also had a number of hugely popular history books published and sold worldwide. You're so important, History teachers of the future may be teaching about you.
