Home Forum General disscusions Teaching following retirement from corporate world Second Career in Teaching after 60


It is possible if you go about it with some savy and a plan. While you are taking courses, volunteer at your local school(s) so they (administrators) can see how effectively you work with whatever age/subject you choose. Once you have your credential, substitute so you get a feel for what it is really like all day in a classroom. Build your reputation and become an “asked for sub”. Then apply in an area of need…if you aren’t too tired. (retired)

This is what I have done…except I don’t want to go back to full time teaching. Subbing three to four days a week is sufficient for me. I went from 39 years in the classroom to 6 years in corporate sale, New Homes for Developers…then back to teaching. Now I blog about my experiences at: http://www.3rrubrics.blogspot.com Check it out. Good luck, Bob
