AngieW in Texas Posted October 5, 2012 Share Posted October 5, 2012 My youngest is a 9th grader this year, so I have just 4 years of hsing left, including this year. What I have been planning to do after all the kids are finished hsing is to teach high school math and science classes in my home. I taught one class each last year and the year before and this year I'm teaching two. I don't think I have the bandwidth to teach more than 2-3 classes while I still have any of my kids at home. I just don't know that I can make the kind of income I need to try to bring in with classes taught in my home. It's fine for now while I'm still hsing, but after the kids are all graduated, I need to be able to bring in at least $30k annually, preferably more. I have an MS in Physics (from 1989), but have only used it to teach. I have taught physics at a community college before (right after I got my MS), but the local cc hasn't advertised a physics position in the past couple of years. I will apply if a spot opens up. Teaching is what I really enjoy. I know I could probably teach at a regular public school. I hate the thought of being trapped in that bureaucracy, but I could do it. I think I'd probably prefer teaching in a private school, but it would have to be a secular private. What other things could I do? I know I could set up to do tutoring and that would allow me to set my own schedule. I just don't know that I want to handle the logistics of it. What other things would you suggest?
