I tried switching careers and going into teaching only to find a billion
applicants for every job. I guess there are shortages in Alaska or if you
are willing to teach English in Japan. There are no shortages in Colorado.
If they want a Masters in Education with 10 years experience, they can find
it. I don't think this profession is worth the hassle given the competition
and low pay. I am reverting back to my old profession as I subbed for 2 years in
hopes of finding a permanent job only to find nothing. I even had 5 star reviews
written about me but it meant little. Anyways, good luck.
