There IS a life outside teaching – but it is probably nothing like you think it is.
Back in February 2013, Robyn approached me to write an article about my transition from teaching in schools, and to share any advice I had for teachers who were curious about leaving the profession. That article can be found here: (The Dark Side Ain’t Half Bad). I would suggest you read it first before you go on.
The reason I’m following it up is that Robyn recently wrote an article about the extreme growth of searches she has encountered lately by teachers interested in “alternatives to teaching”. I can’t touch on what everyone else is thinking when they search this out, but I CAN tell you from my own perspective and maybe,
If I had to boil it down to one word as to why I left teaching it would be this: freedom.

Getting your son or daughter into a top school is difficult. This year, Harvard accepted only 5.9% of applicants. Stanford was even more choosy, accepting a mere 5.1%. But these days, getting into any school has become an increasingly chancy–and complex–proposition for teens and their parents alike.
This is a problem that bothers Pamela Donnelly. Although she is a summa cum laude graduate of Columbia… and a provider of tutoring to kids of Hollywood celebrities… Pamela has a very non-elite, grassroots mission: To make sure every parent in America can figure out the right school for their child. And, at the same time, she wants to make sure all parents have the best possible chance of helping their children get into the schools that are best for them.

Now that you’ve graduated, it’s time to get serious about looking for that first job after college. You have the degree and the qualifications necessary to secure a job that will take you from student to professional, and your resume is the first step along that path. In most situations, a resume just out of school isn’t going to be longer than a single page. Most college students don’t have the benefit of taking part in internships, working professional jobs and as a result, may think they have nothing to put on their resume. With a little effort, you’ll find you have quite a few real, marketable skills, and it’s vitally important to emphasize those skills when creating your resume. Keep in mind that the degree helps improve your marketability. The unemployment rate for individual with a bachelor’s degree is only four percent. That’s less than half the national average of eight percent.
