Okay, so I'm currently a Substitute teacher in Southern California. I'm starting a program that gets me a Masters in Education, as well as a Moderate/Severe Teaching Credential in a year. A lot of work, but I'm ready for it. When lay-offs happen, I know it's the Arts teachers who get their pink slips first. It shouldn't be that way, but it is. Besides it being something I really enjoy, I'm particularly enthusiastic about a Moderate/Severe credential because Special Ed teachers have a bit more security than others do due to demand. But the reality is that teachers don't have a great salary. Now, after a few years of teaching, I'd like to enter an Administrator's credential program. What administrator positions have the most security? Should I aim for anything in particular? Audiologist, school counselors, speech pathologists, program specialists, etc? I'm looking for job security and better salaries than teachers. What has your experience been?
