I was an Elementary Education teacher for a few years before I moved away from Florida. There are not many teaching jobs up here, so I started in the social work field. I am currently working 24 hours a week as a Child Forensic Interviewer (I interview children who have allegations of abuse/neglect/witness to crime/drug endangerment) while law enforcement and children's services watch from the next room via closed circuit TV. I then go to court and testify.
I am in graduate school for Special education. I take ALL my classes online so that going to school is feasible. The special ed degree will allow me to NOT be confined to a classroom and will also give me summers off and breaks during the year. Working 9 months of the year will be a definite bonus for me.
I hope you find what you want to do!
