I was a jr. High science teacher for thirty years. It was a decent living and I often enjoyed it. Sometimes it was horrid and in the 30 years, two of them were forgettable. I’m glad I didn’t miss it but like I told my daughters. If you can do something else that fulfills you and you’re interested in then try for something that delivers that but at the same time delivers a paycheck a family can live on more comfortably. Thankfully both of them took my advice and although no job is perfect and will have it’s ups and downs, their paychecks are much more substantial. As a teacher, your salary after 30 years with a masters degree will often be the same as other college graduate’s starting salaries. That’s the case in my family anyway.
