I received an email (at eric@road2teaching.com) from a student teacher that didn’t want to teach anymore.  In their own words, they said “I am not classroom teacher material.”  Yet, they explained that they still want to be part of the field of education in some manner.  They wanted to know what their options were.

There are many different careers paths a education major can take.  Here are a sample (taken from UTSA):

Admissions Counselor

Camp Director

Chapter 1 Reading Teacher

College Registrar

Cooperative Extension Agent

Arts Enrichment Program Coordinator


And so on…  All in all, you have career options, but it depends on you taking the transferable skills you gained under your training and apply them into other areas.

Please check out the UTSA PDF for more information.  It’s a great starting point.
