Hello, All,

I am currently employed as the Training Director and AVP of
an internet security company but have become very
interested in changing careers to teaching Middle School or
High School computer science classes. I love the training
aspects of my job, but I don't care much for the business
end of it all and the constant need to make profit. I am
much more interested in the successful skill and knowledge
transfer that goes on in the classroom.

I am looking to find out how to make this career transition
happen and I thought this forum would be a good place to
start asking questions. Can anyone offer suggestions or
resource I can turn to to get started?

I have just starting teaching after 17 years of retail
management. I can't begin to express how rewarding this
experience has been not to mention less STRESS.

Anyone who has the guts to change careers midlife, cut salary
in half and deal with pubescent hormones over and over again

Beware the loss of your social security benefits at retirement if
you retire from a school that does not hold out social security.
You will be hit by the GPO andd WEP social security laws.
