    I've been thinking about getting my masters degree and I'm not sure what direction I want to go. Or even what are my options? So what is your masters degree in?

    Ed. Leadership/Principalship...I wanted something that gave me more options to get out of the classroom if I ever decide to.

    I'm studying Reading Education. I want to become a specialist someday and have the option to go into policy and/or curriculum writing.

    Secondary Education (MEd) and Curriculum and Instruction: Language and Literacy (MA)

    I felt like my teaching program didn't really get into literacy enough, and I wanted to understand how people learn to read and write so I could teach those skills better.

    I need to get mine also. I DO NOT want to be the P. I have done that kind of work before and hate it. I love teaching to much.

    I am looking at literacy or ESL.

    My masters is in Educational Leadership. My 6th year is also in Educational Leadership. If I had known how similar the two programs were, I would have gotten my masters degree in a more content-specific discipline. If I had to get one now, I would probably do something in the area of content-area literacy since that is an interest of mine.

    Mine is in Education: Curriculum and Instruction. I will get a masters in Reading eventually, when I can afford it. I teach primary and plan to stay here, so developing expertise in teaching reading would be invaluable for me.
