GUEST,LilyFestre BS: Getting out of teaching (187* d) RE: BS: Getting out of teaching 01 Feb 07

I have just received my state certifcation to teach! Before I graduated, every single student majoring in education (at any level) had to attend several professional seminars. One seminar was about resumes and such by the Career Office at the local university. Before the woman left, she said, "You know, you may get out in the field and find that you hate it. It wasn't what you bargained for and you want out. If you ever get to that point, come see me." Apparently she had started out as a teacher and found it to be less than what she had hoped. She showed us at least 15 different volumes of books containing information about what other things you can do with your teaching degree besides teaching.
I'd suggest contacting the nearest university career center, preferably one with a teaching program, and see what kind of information they can provide you with.

It's always sad to see a teacher (at least the ones who care) go but you have a point and so does Dianavan. There is SO much more to it and most people have no idea.

I wish you success in whatever you find.
