Don't Leave Teaching: Examine Other Teaching Related Careers.
Champagne, David W.; And Others
Teachers who wish to change professions can use their skills in a new setting rather than take jobs in settings where their teaching competencies are of little use. This document provides a list of 29 professions where teaching takes place outside of traditional elementary secondary school buildings. The career of one teacher who left the school setting and found an alternative educational environment to practice her profession is examined through her responses to interview-type questions. Specifically, she describes her current position as coordinator of parent-child programs for the Mailman Family Center of Nova University, the advantages of this position over her previous public school teaching job, her experience and training, and the mental changes necessary to make this career shift.
