Ok guys, some of you know I will be getting out of the Marine Corps in a few years, and that I've thought a lot about what job (preferrably career) I will have when I get out. I've ranged from Air Marshals, to local LEOs, to FBI, CIA, NSA, DIA, working at South West Airlines, a Pilot (that's basically out of the question at this point), opening a gun store, transferring to the Army, etc. I will open a gun store someday. Probably not right when I get out of the Corps. Its just too risky, financially. I will wait until my kids are in college and the mortgage (wherever we're living) is paid off, or close to it. So I thought about becoming a high school teacher. I used to want to do it anyway, when I was in High School and College. I have always been interested in History, Political Theory, Political Science, politics in general. So I was considering either American History or American Government. Maybe also a baseball coach. So today I was thinking about maybe actually doing it. I know we have some former and maybe current teachers here. So please give me as much information as you can. Some general questions: Did/do you enjoy it? What is your favorite part or least favorite part? What are the requirements for teaching in your state? (Do I need a bachelors degree in "Teaching" or some other nonsense?) Is your state friendly to teachers CCing in school? I have heard the pay is not fantastic, but is it "doable" in your area? Promotion opportunities or pay raises? Is union membership a requirement in your state? Any other general thoughts? Thanks friends.
