Greetings, all. I was referred to this forum by one of my teacher friends. I am a licensed high school English teacher from New Jersey. I got my license through New Jersey's Alternate Route program, which was kind of a mistake for me. I'm thinking of going back to school for education. I went to college for English Literature only. I then got my master's in humanities. I initially had my heart set on a PhD, but I decided against it. I found that I actually enjoy working with high school students as opposed to college students. I applied for a long-term subbing job in 2014, and for some reason, I got the job with no teaching or classroom experience. It was mostly trial by fire. I had no idea what I was doing, nor could I control the classroom. I did that job for two years before I landed my first contracted job. Still, at my contracted job, I knew very little about lesson planning and classroom management. It wasn't the right fit of a school; the teachers were a bit narcissistic and did not want to help a new teacher, so I kind of kept to myself and tried to learn everything on my own. I really feel that the NJ Alternate Route program did nothing to help me. I am thinking about going back to school for a master's degree in English Education. I just want to learn more about this field, if that makes sense. Would a master's degree in education be beneficial, or should I go for a master of arts in teaching? My goal is to be a high school English teacher, because I really do enjoy it. I might go for a doctorate at some point.
