If I’m looking to leave the classroom, what jobs are available to me in the corporate world? What can I look for? I have a BS in elementary and special education. I don’t know where to start. Thanks!

I had to leave the classroom due to a chronic health condition 2 years ago. There are lots of legit companies who will pay you to teach English to foreign students (most are Chinese). You don't need a degree or experience in ESL, just a degree and teaching experience. It's decent pay but depending on where you're located, it's limited hours/part time because of the time difference. Other than that, I do a lot of freelance stuff: writing, curriculum, customer service, virtual assisting, etc. You can find postings on sites like flexjobs, upwork, fivrr, media bistro, etc. I actually started out by reading blogs like realwaystoearn and they send me job listings every week and some of those have panned out. Some teachers have gigs on the side like driving for GrubHub, Uber, or dog sitting with Rover. There's a huge gig economy out there to hold you over while you look for a full time job. They also can help you dip your toe in the water and gain experience to land a FT job in another field. Good luck!

Thank you! I’m looking for a full time position for sure. That’s one of the reasons I’m moving away from teaching, I’m so sick of gigs. I was one solid job rather than a million, I’m always working and I’m exhausted and still barely make any money.

We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤
