If you like education and working with children, you have more options than a traditional teaching job. The easiest place to start is to begin tutoring in an area in which you are strongest (elementary math, reading, middle school science, etc). This will allow you to set your price and hours. You can do this one-on-one or in a small group setting. The more experience you have and the more success stories you collect, the higher you can set your rates (within reason).
What about a school counselor?
Most careers that work with children, besides teaching, are very demanding jobs.
I agree with the other answers.
Exactly. That is a job I'm looking for aswell.
The answer down below is a great one. I think that money should be acknowledged but not worried over. I think staying within your financial means is key. Follow your passion and interests. I think as you do opportunities will open before you that will solidify your interests and allow you to explore them while being financially secure. And being a teacher is a fine profession, with plenty of holiday time so you can spend time with family. Besides, higher degrees are available that will increase your profitability. But like Shakespeare said in Hamlet: "above all else, to thine own self be true." Money will come, follow your interests.
Hope that helps!
Hi there. In all my years working in a couple of different fields, if there is one thing that I've learned, is that you must do something you love to be happy with a career choice. There are some benefits to being a teacher. There is no career quite like a teacher, where children look up to you. If you think back to your own early childhood moments, hopefully you remember a teacher that made an impact in your life. I believe that is what I hear in your question. You want to have a career where you can help, even if it isn't the highest paying job out there.
A huge benefit to teaching is the schedule. There are lots of holidays and breaks. Lots of time to spend with your family.
I hope this helps. Feel free to reach out to me with additional questions.
Many blessings on your journey!
