Many first and second-year teachers are getting ready to make THAT decision about next year. Should you stay in teaching? Or pursue other dreams?
It’s a hard choice, a personal one, and there is so much wrapped into it. Almost every major city is thirsty for experienced, high-quality teachers. You undoubtedly love your kids, and would love your next batch just as much. But you arrive home exhausted for a late dinner every night, and you are tired of feeling disappointed in situations and yourself. Maybe the other side of the fence doesn’t seem just greener; maybe it has a water slide, too!
