I have been teaching for the past 13 years, but because of illnesses i am being pushed out. To be honest teaching has become harder and harder to do. I wear more then just the educators hat. I can’t be entertaining all the time!!! And well I am truly tired of caring more about my students grades then they do. My students have always come first, I have even drug myself into work when I really should have been taking care of myself. Or God forbid I staid home w/ my own sick child.  

So what does a soon to be 42 year old women do, when the economy sucks so bad. I have to work, and jobs here in ATL are hard to come by.  

I have 2 degrees and 3 certification and had probably 50 other jobs before I was a teacher, I feel like I am back at square one anyone got any advice???

    • This is a tough time, so you’ve got to use every resource at hand. Search the internet, join business networks online. Are there community colleges where you might do some teaching, or some adult ed courses you could teach?

    • What are your degrees in? If you have a Masters, you might be able to teach at a community college. I am looking into doing that, myself. I have never taught, but I can’t seem to find a job doing anything else, and I have a Master’s Degree.

      It is a bad time to be out of work. Good luck finding something you enjoy!

    • Tori, I have checked out the website, [Link Removed] and found them to be a great resource.  They have advice for working both inside and outside the home.

      I know what you mean about teaching. We‘re fortunate here, my husband works with private school kids who are really motivated and driven but what we hear from friends in education is horrible. Really sad that these kids aren’t caring about their education.

    • I’m a woman.

      I’m pretty but I’m not beautiful.
      I sin but I’m not the devil.
      I’m good but I’m not an angel.

      Love me for who I really am,
      not who you want me to be.

    • If you allow the people in your life to make more emotional
      withdrawals than deposits, you will soon find yourself
      in negative equity.

      You need to know when to close the account.

      Don’t allow anyone to drain you emotionally.

    • A woman is like a teabag.

      You never know how strong she is
      until you put her in hot water.
