Art Teachers/Artists

I am currently researching for a masters course and am wondering how many art teachers really wanted to be artists; but for some reason (afraid of failure, didn't want to be a starving artist...)became teachers instead.
Then, how do you think art teachers are different than say, math or science or language teachers. Did a high percentage of math teachers want to be mathematicians or science teachers, scientists......or language teachers, writers.....
what are your thoughts...
