Disclaimer: My apologies to any new teachers just entering the field. This is not meant to scare anyone away from the profession. I have tried all summer long to break into the corporate sector but I've received not one phone call for an interview. I'm afraid that due to my teaching background I am somewhat unmarketable. I mean can anyone tell me of alternative careers for teachers? I've worked with children for a little over 10 years. 5 in a daycare setting and the other 5 teaching 3rd grade. I've had it with my tyrannical and micromanageable principal. I've had it with parents and their zero accountability. I've had it with the stress of standardized testing expectations. I am burnt out and ready for a change.
