Hello everyone! I would like to seek out advice from other educators. I am currently in the process of applying for a doctorate program. I am pursuing my doctorate degree in order to be involved in local and state politics, as well as being an administrator. The two PhD that I am currently look at are a PhD in psychology- Cognition and Instruction OR a PhD in psychology: Integrating Technology, learning, and psychology. Can anyone recommend which one would be the better option? Thank you!

Over my entire teaching career, I've had to move out of state several times and start over. At my interviews, admin would ask for a portfolio of work and I wouldn't have much bc I often purge all student work or what I created was left on the school's drive. Do any of you have a teaching portfolio and how do you make one?

I’ve been with my school district for 15 years and had an interview for a different district. They offered me a position but only pay 1 year to every 2 you’ve been teaching for. I had to turn it down since it would be a $12,000 pay cut! Only in education you get penalized for trying to make a career change; seems other types of careers; they will pay you more or at least for your experience. We get a slap in the face for our worth..... doesn’t seem right how the system works for us....

What would you do if a coworker asks you to disclose your salary info so that she can tell another person it, who is applying for a job (thinking since it was my first year and it will be hers and they would be similar)? It automatically made me feel uncomfortable and it’s someone I don’t have a great relationship with, but also don’t want to be on her bad side? How would you feel?
