As an experienced Master’s level (4.0) teacher with two separate teaching licenses (English & Reading Specialist) , what other avenues are open to me career-wise? I am highly skilled but looking to transition out of the classroom, even if the options are only to stay in education but in a different position. I’m also open to working in a completely different type of career, but I’m not even sure where to get started. I know I would be a valuable asset to some education business, corporation that could utilize my coaching or human-resources type management, or...something else entirely. I’m smart, organized, efficient, and can manage people well. Who could use these skills but pay me a fair paycheck worth my degrees?
I am not desperate, just curious. Any tips on how to best research careers for transitioning from teaching to new areas? I’m not afraid of further training, but I’d like to make careful choices before signing up for more classes (like many, I’m still in student loan debt for my Master’s degree).
Advice for next steps?
-training courses ?
-careers that would be a good fit?
