I have seen posts on here asking what you would do as a dream second job, or what type of job you would do as a teacher who wants to move into another profession. My question is "Would you do all it all over again if you had a choice? Would you go through the required schooling, many state teacher tests, TPA's (for those states that have them), masters programs, and of course the crazy in-and-outs of the current state of classroom teaching?" I am asking, because I think I might have to go through another teacher education program to get hired in my state (two more years of school). I currently have roughly 5 1/2 years of college education. I keep going back and forth asking myself if I want to do it all over again (another 2 years of school for a second BA). I have researched many other professions, but have only wanted to be a teacher. I feel like I am stuck on a hamster wheel, making no progress at all. I make up my mind to go back to college, but then start looking around at all the unhappy teachers and reading the blogs. That and my first teaching experience change my mind. But I can't think of any other job that suits me, as well as, teaching. It's just so hard to let it go. Of course I am on ATOZ all the time peeking into the current events. To let it go, or to jump on board? That is the question.... How many of you would be completely thrilled and overjoyed to jump through the hoops of becoming a teacher all over again?
