Hey everyone! It has been a while since I posted! I am finishing grad school and will earn my degree and certification at the end of the year!!!! I cannot wait to student teach! Lately, I have been substituting and teaching online from home. During this time out of the prek classroom, I have pondered about where my life will take me after receiving an MEd. My first plan before working from home full time was to finish my degree and become a teacher in one of the local Elementary schools. However, teaching from home full time has open my mind to so many opportunities. I thought about teaching abroad but then felt as if I am kind of old to take a break in my career to teach abroad only for a year. Especially if I am in a country I do not plan on living for the rest of my life. I then got the idea of securing my MEd and keeping certificate active while continuing working from home. I have the freedom to save money and travel to the places I want to go instead of teaching there. I also have time to see my therapist and focus on weight loss. My life is in a better place. What made the idea of teaching from home solid was when I got the offer letter to become an Academic Specialist full time from home. This company offers benefits and good work hours. The only issue I have with this idea is that many people do not see teaching online as a "real job" but it is real to me. It pays the bills and I am also paying off so much debt. While staying with my parents, I have enough saved to find another place by the end of the summer. I also grapple with the concept that I am too young to be working from home. At 26 soon to be 27, I feel as if I should be on a physical job working and that I will miss out if I do not. I love what I do and plan on maybe getting a graduate certificate in Online Education. If I do plan to go back for a Doctorate, I plan to focus on something that is geared towards online adult education. I currently received a TESOL certificate through my university. I just enjoy it and do not want to go back to a physical classroom unless if I am in a dire emergency. Sorry for the long post you guys!
