    What sorts of jobs can you apply/get after MAT/Med?

    I will come clean, I don't want to work in a dysfunctional low-SES district. I want to work in a functioning, achieving school where your jobs require you to actually teach 50% or more of the time.

    If that doesn't happen then I want a different job. What other jobs do people do?

    Thanks

    You could work at a university or community college, probably not in a teaching position though, unless you have 18 graduate hours in a particular subject. A couple of my co-workers have MAT's and we work at a public university in distance ed/educational outreach.

    I don't know about many schools anywhere where you won't be teaching challenging students. They may not have major behavior concerns, but may be academically challenged.

    Another choice would be to find a private school that only enrolls top students with no behavior or academic concerns.

    Maybe teaching just isn't the route you need to pursue?

    It kind of depends what those degrees are in. It is not a "one size fits all" designation. You could teach ESL, which is my MED, or SPED, Reading specialist, a foreign language, other content subjects, and the list goes on. Most do acquire something that distinguishes them and adds another certification, but not all. Choose wisely, but I am with the previous poster - students with needs are everywhere and the wealth or prestige of the district will not protect you from having to work with them.

    I'm confused... do you have your MAT or M.Ed. or are you thinking about getting one?

    swansong I worked in urban ed and loved - I am talking about a class of 30 kids; 45% who spit sunflower seeds on you and try to grab your ass and tell you they want to kill you. Those is the students I don't want to teach and that behavior is not present in all schools as I never encountered it before.
