you must do what you like don't just study something for the money, i know people who studied something just for the money and when they got the job they hated it because its not what they really like and dream of, so first think of what you like the most then do some research about it and learn about how much money you will make, but the most important thing is to do what you like. if you are still in school you still have time to think about it, in time you will know what you want. and i think that ER physician or an anesthesiologis is the better choice.

For respect, I would suggest medicine. For money, I would suggest medicine. Starting salaries for teachers depends on the district. Some start at $32,000 and some start at $50,000. Salaries after 37 years also vary. Some top out at $80,000 and some reach $120,000 Doctors have large malpractice insurance costs. Teacher do not. Doctors, after Obamacare is implemented, will be subject to whatever payment the government decides for a given procedure. Teachers in New Jersey get free medical coverage (not subject to Obamacare) for life after 25 years employment. Chose which will make you happier.

You make more as a teacher when you teach a language other than English, and it's easier to get into teaching in a French-speaking school. If you go into teaching it's 4 yrs university + 1 of teachers college (or so I've been told by my current teachers), and medical stuff is like 10+ years of university. Doctors make more money though, but both get the vacations. Go with what you feel is right for you. Follow your heart :)

Both of your choices mean you want to help people. As a teacher, you would be developing young minds; as a doctor, you would be healing bodies of young and old. Perhaps you might want to help people in both mind and body; if so, consider psychiatry or sports psychology.
