I quit my job! It was a very scary decision to make...and I'm still wondering how things will turn out for our budget, because taking on more debt will NOT be an option! However, I have been BEYOND happy to start my "Back-To-School" career substitute teaching in two school districts. I have been in the elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools! I am soaking it all in and trying to decide where my heart lies for future career choices.
Jobs I am Currently Qualified For:
*5th-12th grade language arts/English teacher
*Private Preschool Teacher
Jobs I'm Debating Further Education For:
*Special Education Teacher
*Middle School Teacher w/ Social Studies Endorsement
Ultimate Dream Job Someday:
*Speech Language Pathologist
Unless I get a full-time teaching job with my current license, I will probably continue subbing until I am able to start taking classes towards one of the other endorsements. With my ultimate goal of someday (many years from now) becoming a Speech Language Pathologist, I'm leaning toward the special education endorsement. I have been picking up a lot of special ed jobs in the schools, and I am loving it!
More to come I'm sure, but know that I am so crazy happy with my recent career change...it feels so good to follow your heart! :)
