I am a high school English teacher. The past 5 years I’ve taught solely 9th grade, but this year I am moving up to 10th grade. I teach the honors program, so I’m super excited to move up with my kids this year.  They were a great group last year, so I’m excited to see the growth they continue to have. I’m also the instructor for my school’s color guard, which I also love.

I’m a PhD student in anthropology, education, and sociology. 

DrAtkins :  That is so cool! I’m fascinated with the medical field even though I’m a social scientist. My dissertation is on educational anthropology, but I fully intent to make medical anthropology one of my areas of research and publication. 

FutureMrsBex :  I majored in English as an undergraduate. I love it but don’t think I could handle high school kids lol 

loveydove :  Same! I’m about to start my eighth straight year of post-secondary education and I have at least two years left, probably more like three to four. Yikes.

echomomm :  You have my dream job! Did you have to make the jump from classroom teacher first? I have my M.Ed and Reading Specialist cert, but I haven’t been able to translate that into a reading intervention position. Any tips?

I did work in the funeral industry, but due to major health reasons, I cannot do it anymore. It makes me sad because I loved my job. 

I am not sure what career I want to do now, maybe teaching. It is definitely scary to start all over at 36.

Psychologist, but I also interview and assess prospective adoptive or foster care applicants and write a fancy schmancy 30+ page report on their history.
