NU #15 - Flip Your Perspective About How You View Your Teaching Career: Twelve Ideas.

I have noticed that many educators have been conditioned to think about their teaching careers in a linear manner. I’m starting to see more and more qualified teachers who are expanding their interests outside the framework of a traditional school model. I think this is valuable to & for the profession and it can be an amazing experience worth exploring further.

Thinking in a linear way about your career is not always helpful - especially in the long run. I love talking & brainstorming about other ways to mix things up a bit. Some believe in the age old philosophy of “ride it out”, until the desired retirement factor is reached. Then, they have the ability to draw upon the coveted teacher pension - the perceived holy grail of pensions.
