So listen, I know that title maybe makes me sound incompetent, but I swear I'm a great teacher. I don't know if any of you can relate, but I was one of those kids in school that got pushed into being a teacher. Not that I'm complaining, I genuinely love what I do, but I'm so lost when it comes to making this my full time career. I went to college and got my degree in Theatre, since that is primarily what I want to teach. I also got minors in Education and English. I have many years of experience working in schools. Most recently, I've worked in an after school program for the last three years running of own classroom and I've loved it. However, I can't work there forever. I really want to break into the world of full time teaching, but I don't know how to get there. Google results seem to point me in a million different directions. Everyone that's a teacher that I've talked to has either given me mixed advice or became a teacher a while ago when the certifications and rules were less strict. I've already passed the Communication and Literacy MTELS, but now I'm stumped on what to do next. I know I need to take the subject test for what I want to teach, but other than that I'm completely lost. I'm trying to avoid going back to school right away, if I can because I don't have the money and already have so many student loans to pay off. At this point, I'd be happy to just break into the full time teaching world, even if it isn't necessarily as a theatre teacher right away. I am honestly so confused and worried of burning out before I even get to really start. I know I have the power to make a difference to my students as cheesy as that sounds, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!
