This story is part of CNBC Make It’s Millennial Money series, which details how people around the world earn, spend and save their money.

Jae Byun loves his job as a high school math teacher and basketball coach. And he makes six figures doing it.

But he didn’t always plan to pursue a career in education.

While attending the University of California, Irvine, Byun majored in business economics with plans to eventually work in the financial industry. However, after completing a number of internships within that field, he changed his mind.

“As I was going through those internships and going through those experiences, I just found myself wanting something different,” Byun tells CNBC Make It.

Jae Byun, 31, earns around $115,000 teaching math and coaching basketball at a high school in Orange County, California.
