Dont know yet. Just finished my Student Teaching 18 week gig 3 weeks ago. I am being interviewed at that same school (Catholic Memorial High School) to teach AP Gov and IB Geography.
2nd career for me too. Was in manufacturing for 20 years--ivy league mba--and decided on career change at age 47. MAT in 2000. 1st job was on a reservation in Oregon. Initially, I thought I would go the AP route, but quickly realized that the AP kids are self directed and would survive without me. The low SES kids so rarely see talent of any kind that they respond quickly to the most basic intervention and instruction. If you want to be an agent for social change forget the AP / IB track--there are plenty teachers eager to take that route. More concretely, for me it's far more satisfying to successfully run a real, year-long MS Office application class culminating with ACCESS for kids with no prospects except what I provide.
I did not "pick" this route. That is the only opening in the Social Sciences department. If I get it then when one of the other teachers quit/retire I can "pick" classes.
I'm currently in Dallas, TX and am a web marketing manager. I also teach adjunct for a college near Dallas in front-end web and graphics. I've recently created a guitar training curriculum for schools and teachers. If you want to check it out: http://www.igniteguitar.com
Hoping to continue to improve as a mentor of my students through interactive teaching. Also am a constant learner and would love collaboration for general tips to engage my students as well as back end web design ideas for continuing to improve myself and to eventually teach my students.
