I am 1/2 done with just my BA in elementary ed. i am a mother to three children, and i pretty much slave myself to get through school in hopes to make our life better, with a great career choice. However reading some post around here and how bad others have it *EVEN WITHOUT CHILDREN* am i getting myself into a job that isnt going to pay off going to school for? I will love my job i have wanted to teach since i was 7, but the thought of going to school and struggling so much to stay in, and to get out without a rewarding pay for my kids and i, really does make me upset and makes me feel like why am i even going?? or maybe i should try to change? There isnt another job that i can picture myself doing, im so lost ill add that im in ky, so not a huge city. cost of living is pretty cheap compared to most. Im sure all of this makes a differnce.
