Career Decision

Well, I have sort of come to a decision about my career, which is good because I have been floundering--sort of wanting to be okay with just being a SAHM, but also feeling like I needed to push ahead with teaching because I really loved it and it made me happy.

So last night I sort of made a decision/plan for how to proceed over the next 5-10 years. Being at home IS important to me and that will be my main "job"--but I think in September, 2011, when the baby is 10 months old, I will start taking classes toward a Master's Degree in English. Like maybe just one the first semester, and then one-two each semester after that, take it slow but keep "something else" in my life that I am working on to stimulate me besides just the baby.

And then after I get my Master's Degree, I would like to try to teach at a community or local college very-part time--again, like one or two classes each semester.

Then at some point in the distant future when my kids are grown up and I want to get back in the full-time job world, I can look at HS teaching jobs and can apply for them from a position of current experience rather than past inexperience, KWIM?

So that is the plan! And since my consciousness settled on this decision, I have felt much less quaking and uncertainty inside my chest--I feel as if I am making a step forward--or at the least--envisioning what that step would be has put something to rest inside me. :-)

Sounds like an awesome plan to me....I have been thinking that part of me wants to be a SAHM, but then there is another part of me that really enjoys working :)
