I have been in the chilcare field for about six years and am totally burned out, both mind and body.  I recently moved and was SO excited to embark on a carreer out of the field. But after weeks of searching I applyed to and was hired as a Toddler Teacher.  I LOVE kids, but working with young toddlers has taken its toll.  I am starting a family of my own and know I am not capable of doing both corporate daycare and raise my own children.  I have a BFA, but college seems such a long time ago.  Does anyone have any advice on where my career can go from here?  I'm not even sure where to look, I have been doing this for so long.  Thank you for all your advice and support.
