Help! Teacher attempting to leave the classroom
I’m attempting to do the scariest thing I’ve ever done professionally...leave the classroom. Being a teacher right now is...not great, and it’s something I’ve been thinking about for awhile anyways. Given that my 11 year career has been all teaching, and most people I know professionally are teachers/in public education, I was hoping to get some corporate/non-education perspectives. -Have you hired a teacher right out of the classroom before? Why? What made them a good fit for you? -I recognize that my resume needs to show how my skills apply to a new type of position. So far I’ve been looking at opportunities still semi-within the education industry (content writing with ed techs, assessment writing for companies that support districts, etc). Is there anything else I need to be thinking about in approaching a career pivot? -Are there other types of positions where my skills might also be a good fit that I haven’t considered? I’ve read that some teachers have successfully become corporate trainers, but every job description I’ve read so far for those requires some type of industry-specific knowledge that I certainly don’t have. (For background purposes—I have a Masters, experience writing content for an ed tech company, some experience training other teachers, as well as roles/responsibilities where I’ve deeply expanded my elementary math content knowledge [so I would consider that my area of specialty at this point]).
