For years, I have had teaching on my list for possible career choices. However, I have had enough hesitations that I never felt confident enough in the choice to bite the bullet and start down that path. Recently, however my hesitations have dissipated and I have really felt like that might just be a good career for me. So I found a couple of career switcher programs in my state and it looks like I should be able to start the process towards a teaching license within a few months.
I am going to try to teach secondary biology and math. I found a federal grant program that offers money towards people teaching in math and science in low income schools. Luckily for me, that is what I want to teach and most of the local schools qualify as low income. :)
