I'm contemplating this as an option for next year. I'm thinking I could spend the time subbing, which would still be a substantial increase in income. That way I could bang out my thesis. I finished all the coursework for my graduate degree 3 years ago, but didn't get my thesis done in the allotted time. I took a year off and then went to get my teaching credential. Now I'm done with the credential but I'm taking literature classes and don't have time. I figure if I sub 3 days a week this fall, I can focus on writing twice weekly. I'd also like to get involved with the theatre again. Apart from a student production during grad school, I haven't been in a show for almost 9 years! Pros: -get thesis done -gain classroom experience -maybe rekindle my passion for performance Cons: -Each semester more graduates further saturate the job pool -Prolonging BTSA (teacher induction program), which would also prolong my stay in Cali -No health insurance -Will have to ask for new letters of rec when I start applying for jobs. What would you do?
