Some of my friends are fretting over the current job situation that they are in. Many are employed but a few have found themselves with a pink slip. To me, it is a time to get more competitive and to go back to basics. The professions that seem to be hiring across the board are in the medical field or, to some extent, are specialized teachers.
Across the nation, school districts are in a reshuffle. As jobs move, some districts find that they need to combine classes to respond to lower enrollment numbers while some are experiencing a boom. Teachers are getting pink slips in some cases. Luckily, in places such as Washington, D.C., teachers are retained based on performance rather than merely tenure. Even so, the need for new teachers is very much there. However, the greatest need is for teachers who specialize either in special education or have scientific qualifications to teach technical classes. In fact, Not that teachers with general degrees are not needed, but the more flexible you can be or the more you have in your toolbox, the greater chance you have as districts shuffle things around.
The problem sometimes is finding the time, or with someone who is unemployed, having the extra resources such as gas money to attend a Masters program. Another dilemma is deciding to be away from a newborn baby. If you have found yourself in this dilemma, you may want to check out the program information from the USC Rossier School of Education.
Whether you are a teacher with a Bachelor’s Degree and want to define your niche, or you have a degree in another discipline and want to teach, you can learn from the comfort of your home. There is an extensive online program that includes a tuition reimbursement program and an accelerated program. There are local field based experiences, so don’t worry about just reading a book and not being able to apply it.
