I say, "The Plan" and God laughs..

Did you know that I switched majors in college from business to teaching? And then I switched back to business? In 3 (holy cow!) weeks I will have a Bachelor's in Business Management. My plan is to pursue teaching. In some counties, such as the one I live in, there are alternative ways to getting hired as a teacher without a teaching degree..and most of the time, the school will pay for some/all of the tuition to get licensed.

As we are nearing August, and it is very unlikely that I will get a position for the fall, because I will not officially have my college degree until August 15- teachers are supposed to go back on the 31st and students on September 8th. However, for the upcoming year I plan to sub and hopefully get a job next school year. (I do of course have my fingers crossed that SOMETHING permanent will open up! And praying. Hard.)

FYI I am still going to pursue photography part-time.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

It's the rest of your life you're talking about here! lol It's better to change your mind now rather than later... :)

I'm in the process of figuring out what I want to do with my life as well.

I've been following your blog for a little bit and also live in the DC area. I teach in Fairfax County. I didn't get hired until the beginning of Aug. last year so you might still be able to do this year if you wanted to! Good luck and keep us posted!

You'll be a great teacher, for sure. But don't stop with the photography - you are great.

You're so right.

It doesn't matter how many times you change majors as long as you love what you're doing

I was so indecisive in college and now that I've graduated I STILL AM. Good luck!

Yay!

Subbing is really a lot of fun! You get to do something different everyday... "try out" different grades/subjects... and just see what's out there.

embrace the change.

nice work my friend.

I agree with Miss Anne. Subbing will be a great opportunity to figure out what grade and/or subject you prefer.

Good for you!!
