  • Now that you have made the decision to teach, you may be wondering about the next steps in your professional career. While others can’t make career path decisions for you, but this guide can help to demystify the choices along the way.Education is great, but it’s not free and it is time consuming. So, let’s start with a specific purpose in mind. I recommend that you start with a self and environmental analysis.
  • Let’s start with a Self Analysis and consider if now is the best time to consider graduate school?
  • Here are some questions to consider…Are you burned out after 4 years of college?Are you considering getting married: if so, you will also want to consider your spouse’s career.Are you unsure of your career goals?Are you over-burdened with undergraduate student loans?If your response is” yes” to these questions, it may be best to take some time to continue teaching and reflect before making this commitment of time and money. 
  • On the other hand:Are you pretty certain that teaching is your calling, and are you…Ready to advance both professionally and financially in your teaching career?If your response is yes to these questions, now may be the best time to get started with your graduate education plans.
  • Discover your passionsAt this point, we are still working on the self analysis.What do you enjoy? Do you enjoy working with students for whom English is their second language? How about children with mild to moderate or severe disabilities, or gifted and talented children? Maybe you really enjoy working in the educational field, but believe that you have gifts and talents in leadership or technology. Now is the time to look within and be honest about what you enjoy and see as your gifts and talents. But you’re not finished – it doesn’t help to love teaching basket weaving if there are no basket weaving positions available. 
  • Discover your passionsAt this point, we are still working on the self analysis.What do you enjoy? Do you enjoy working with students for whom English is their second language? How about children with mild to moderate or severe disabilities, or gifted and talented children? Maybe you really enjoy working in the educational field, but believe that you have gifts and talents in leadership and administration or technology. Now is the time to look within and be honest about what you enjoy and see as your gifts and talents. But you’re not finished – it doesn’t help to love teaching basket weaving if there are no basket weaving positions available. 
  • So, let’s perform an environmental analysis. Here are some tasks you can do to investigate what the economic environment is like in your area.Examine your county’s school district salary matrix.Go to the district’s website and examine the help wanted ads.Talk to your building principal and ask about the trends in your school and district.Search for national educational hiring trends.Look at corporate job openings using search sites such as Monster or Career Builder.Talk to college graduate education advisors or deans – they are generally well-informed in this type of data.You can also talk to other professionals in the area of studies you’re considering – you will learn a wealth of information from these folks.
