    Have you ever thought about another job inside or outside a school?
    I have thought about school counseling but the internship is just too long in my state. I couldn't do it while teaching. I currently teach 4th grade ela. I have a masters in Ed tech which gave me the computers/technology license k-12. Then I have a just completed a k-12 licensure for special Ed. I would also love to try teaching a college class to see what it's like.

    The jobs outside education I've considered never seem as exciting or fulfilling to me. They'd just be jobs to go to and then leave. I can't do that, I'd be bored out of my mind.

    I am eventually hoping to become an instructional coach, maybe admin, or curriculum development within a district at some point. I still want to teach for a little longer, but I think I'd be really good at mentoring teachers or developing curriculum.

    I do think working with teachers would be fun. But wouldn't like being a principal. I would definitely love if my district hired a tech coach. I feel qualified and confident enough to do the job right now already. We've hired some from outside the district but I'd love if we had one hired by the actual district.

    Teaching college is a lot of fun. I've been doing it for two years now and love it. :heart:
