Conquer Teacher Burnout - Alternative Careers for Teachers

  • Has classroom teaching become a dreaded chore?25 alternative careers for teachers
  • Do you leave work with a headache everyday?
  • Are you often bone-tired at the end of the school day?
  • Do you find yourself growing impatient and irritable at work and home?
  • Do you get a sinking feeling every Sunday evening knowing you have to got to work the next day?

If you said, “Yes” to any of these questions, you might be experiencing teacher burnout. During the last year I have heard from numerous teachers who are feeling like you-frustrated, exhausted, and discouraged in their present positions.

Most of us went into teaching with enthusiasm, high energy, and a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of the students we teach. We chose to go to work early and stay late. There weren’t enough hours in the day to do all the fun activities that popped into our heads.

Today, we still go in early and stay late- but out of necessity, not choice. There is not enough time in the day to plan, grade, call parents, or complete paperwork and behavior referral forms. We are besieged with mind-numbing meetings where we have even more non-teaching work dumped on us. We are discouraged because there is no time for the exciting activities that we used to do with our kids. We’re feeling:

  • Disillusioned
  • Unmotivated
  • Frustrated
  • Disappointed
  • Cynical
  • Tired

Teaching has always been a physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding career. But significant changes in classroom teaching have caused many educators to question their career choice. Because of dwindling monetary resources, school violence, bureaucratic red tape and behavior problems, many are leaving the profession. They want to pursue alternative careers that foster their love of teaching without the challenges of running a classroom.

“When the Classroom is Killing You: 25 Alternative Careers for Teachers” was written for such teachers. This booklet will provide you with career options you may not know you have.Descriptions are given for 25 careers that use the skills and knowledge that teachers possess. Some of the careers highlighted included:

  • Grant Writing
  • Children’s Assemblies
  • Tutoring
  • Adult Vocational Education
  • Teaching Union Careers
  • Children’s Party Planning

“When the Classroom is Killing You: 25 Alternative Careers for Teachers” gives an overview of each career including a description of skills and educational requirements, variations within each career, web resources and print references.

Do you long for a work-at-home career so you can be with your children and still pay the bills? Several of the careers in this booklet lend themselves to a home business.

  • Writing books, booklets, newsletters, magazine articles
  • Game, toy, software creator or tester
  • Home sales demonstrator of educational products

Maybe you are nearing retirement but are unwilling to give up your long-lived connection to sharing information with others. Because you still have so much to offer, you might consider:

  • Motivational speaking
  • Workshop Presentations
  • Library or Museum Guides
  • Educational Consulting

Don’t spend another moment feeling helpless and hopeless. It’s time to stop being a disciplinarian and start being an educator. “When the Classroom is Killing You: 25 Alternative Careers for Teachers” can help bring back your enthusiasm for teaching and get you on the road to a better life.
