OP, I would like to ask have you ever considered teaching abroad? Possibly English as a Second Language or in an international school. I LOVED my job in South Korea. It was challenging at first, but I eventually got the hang of it. The students are a lot more respectful and the job in general did not hold the responsibilities that I have in my current teaching job. No contacting parents. No creating assessments or tracking progress. One meeting a month. No taking work home. From 8-4:30, I sat in the office for literally half that time on some days. The list goes on. I lessoned planned on all of my down time and always had fun giving the lessons. I taught English conversation. It was more of an ancillary or special period for the students. They still had their other regular education courses. It was never mundane, because it was a completely different country/culture. Always something to explore and see. I travelled to multiple countries during my time there and am also planning to go back abroad after one more teaching year here in the states. The great thing about teaching abroad is you can pick pretty much any country and change it up constantly.
