Teaching, that is. I know I made a post sometime last year about switching careers, and I'm just feeling really stressed right now. Pretty much all last year I questioned my decision to become a teacher. I thought that switching to my ideal grade might change my mind, and I know it's early in the year, but I still question whether or not I want to teach much longer. I'm basically sick and tired of working 2 jobs to make ends meet, and barely making $38,000 between the two. I work about 70 hours a week and I'm burnt out. Switching grades has made my life even more stressful. I just want a life. I have to leave right away after school to go to my 2nd job, I work Saturdays, and I have to go in Sunday to do my lesson plans. I also think our job is only getting more difficult: higher class sizes, less support, all of the stuff going on here in Wisconsin...I just don't think I want to do it much longer. Has anyone else ever second-guessed teaching as a career?
