My job is substitute teaching [In reply to] Can't Post

while I sort through six possible different career paths that are all open after finishing school. One of those is eventual plans for possibly full-time teaching which would involve renewing licenses and considering additional endorsements - a thing that is possible now that I finished the Master's degree.

When it became clear that a PhD was not in the works within anything close to my budget for time and money - I stayed at the Master's level and did my job-search work while actually working rather than trying to drag out school just to be able to say I was still in school and threatening to compromise the progress I had made in terms of recommendations and GPAs and all (I don't think that I would perform as well as usual if I knew that the work I was doing was unlikely to lead to something productive). It is all so complicated - there are so many factors involved that I really don't know if it is worth it to detail all of it here! Subbing offers the optimal flexibility without leaving anyone in a really bad situation should one of those six career paths suddenly present an opportunity. I really like doing it, too. But I couldn't tell you where I will be in the next few months and it is definitely more of a job than a career.

I have to admit that if I were working at a bookstore with an employee discount, I may be unlikely to come out ahead Tongue.
