I hear you - I am feeling the same way lately. I just need more fulfillment in my professional/work life and I'm not sure what that means for me yet.


From the teachers I know, I can tell you that it HAS to be a passion for you. If you don't feel passionate about it, the administration headaches and

There is a great article in this month's Womans Day magazine (October issue) about changing careers. It focuses on four people who have made drastic career changes or moves in order to find more fulfillment in life. If you can pick up a copy, it's worth a read.

One woman started making truffles as a hobby on the side, starting selling them door-to-door to businesses and eventually turned it into a successful, full-time career. Maybe there's something you can start on the side? Start small, see if you like it, and see if it grows? That's my plan right now.

The article also mentions a book that might be a good resource for you. I can't think of the title right now -- I'll look at the article tonight and post it for you tomorrow.

Hi Neverhappy09,


Welcome to the board!!


I used to be a teacher. I stopped because my ex husband was in the military and it was hard to keep up with each state requirement.
