Hello Junho. You actually have 2 different thought processes going on simultaneously. Let me address the "becoming a teacher" concern first. It sounds as though you may have done a little research if you are aware that teachers don't get paid a lot of money. nut if teaching is you calling and something you feel passionate about then the accolades you'll receive from working with students far outweighs money. Would you rather have a career you love and enjoy doing everyday or be miserable and make money? Intrinsic or extrinsic rewards is what is comes down to. Thee is more mobility in the teaching field than there used to be so staying a classroom teacher is not the only option. Also, teachers are not just needed in the US but everywhere. You could teach overseas in an American or International school and reap the rewards of travel, learning about different cultures etc.
To address the 2nd concern of making an abundance of money depends on many factors such as your interest, hobbies, what you like to do, what you feel passionate about. Again, it's foolish to choose a career that you are only pursuing because of a possible big paycheck and never find a day of happiness in that job. A simple example would be studying to be a doctor. Eventually they make a nice salary but it takes years of study and the aptitude/drive to finish. Then you have to become part of a practice and continue to learn and gain new skills to stay current before you ever see money associated with the title of Doctor. And what if you dislike talking to people about their illnesses or concerns.
A lot to consider when choosing a career path. Money is a very small part.
