This week, I have two interviews lined up. I still have my side gig of tutoring, which keeps me motivated and keeps me creative. I want to share about my journey in being a teacher because if you know someone that has the same feelings that I do, then please let them know there are so many options out there for teachers.
- Tutoring – We all know that the education system is messed up. There are many students that do not do well in mass education. Tutoring is a great gig. It helps with having an interaction with an individual as well as their parents. Also, there are many agencies that specialize with students with disabilities as well as publishing their own tutoring books. You can make your own hours, and be creative in lesson planning.
- Babysitting – There are agencies that want special educators that have experience taking care of students with special needs. You are basically getting to know a child in the home environment, you can make your own lesson plans, and interact with the parents. Sometimes it could require housekeeping and cooking.
- SETSS agencies – I am trying out this. Basically, you are working for an agency in a school environment. It could be a push-in (where I will be teaching a small group of students in the general teacher’s classroom) or pull-out (where I could take out the small group into a resource room). You get a higher pay depending on how many students are in your classroom, which varies from agency to agency.
I will share more in latter posts about my experience in the SETSS agency. Please keep me in your prayers as well as sharing this post for anyone that want other choices in their teaching careers.
