I'm looking into various Masters programs that will further me in my teaching career. While I would like nothing more than to teach for many more years, I don't foresee a bright future in that regard. So I'd like my masters work to give me options, should/when I get laid-off. So I'd prefer not to go for a Masters in Teaching, which I feel would be easiest (NOT to say it is an easy program!) My question is whether any Masters would go toward salary steps in public school districts? Or does the Masters have to do with teaching? I'm looking at possibly technology programs, even agricultural programs... but I don't think I'd do them, if it still didn't help me in terms of salary in education.
