I'm unsure whether I should apply for Career Switchers or grad school, and advice would be greatly appreciated. I have a B.A. in History and I taught ESOL for six years abroad. I want to teach PK-3 and possibly ESOL. I live in Fairfax County and I'm afraid I'll have a hard time finding a job here (or even in neighboring counties) if I take the Career Switchers route. I'm currently a SAHM to two toddlers and I definitely think it would be easier to attend grad school now rather than putting it off until later. I just worry about my job prospects; what if I spend all this money on grad school and still can't find a job in/around NoVA after earning my Master's and teaching license? I do plan to start subbing in Fairfax County or Prince William soon to gain more experience. Moving far away is not really an option due to my husband's career, though I'd be willing to commute an hour or so. Some people I've talked to have had a negative attitude about me trying to become a teacher this late in life (I'm 32), so it's really hard not to doubt myself. I know it will be tough no matter which path I choose, but I'm excited!! Thank you for reading this.
