Are you sure it's something you would enjoy doing full time? I ask this because a large percentage of new teachers switch careers within 5 years of starting their teaching career, and it would be a shame if you went back to school and went further into educational debt for something that you don't like long-term.

I can attest to that. DH got his degree in math ed and taught one year. Hated every minute of it and refused to go back for another year.

Now that we are married, he does do some substitute teaching. For him it is the fun part that he enjoyed without all the bureaucracy/paper work/parents that he hated dealing with.
