My daughter is a sophomore in college. She started college with the goal to become an Occupational Therapist (money!). We (and almost everyone who knows her) have been telling her since early high school that she would make a great teacher, although, we hadn't mentioned it since she started college. Last night she was practically in tears. She no longer wants to be an Occupational Therapist (she doesn't like Psychology...and there's a lot of Psychology involved). She's been working at a Daycare since her Senior year in high school...loves it and it shows. She's thinking she wants to be a teacher. But, she's afraid. She said half of the kids enrolled in college are there for a teaching degree. What if there are no jobs when she graduates? And, even if she does get a job, she's concerned about money. Cost of living going up...will she be paid enough as a teacher? I am in school for an education degree...and yet, I still can't answer these questions for her, as they aren't ones I've ever raised. Anyone know how I can find out what the job outlook will be when she graduates (as I said, she's a sophomore)? Specifically in Indiana (Indianapolis)? What about salary outlook? Are there areas of study that pay more than others? Any suggestions? She's a brilliant girl (bias, aside!), in two Honor Societies, very focused and goal oriented. Makes great grades. I have no doubt she will succeed at whatever she chooses to do.
