I am meeting with an old career coach in late December. Many factors contributed to this decision to leave education. I thought that I just needed to find the right position. Not true. For me, working in any school system and teaching simply do not fit. I do not like working in a school and I do not like my job. I also have to consider financial issues as well.
When I put together my Exit Plan, I look forward to finding a job that pays a living wage for starters. I plan to present my reason for leaving as financial. Nobody needs to know I do not like teaching and the other functions of working in education. If I dislike my job, that is one thing. If this job pays below a living salary, that is a horse of a different color.
