K-12 Teacher to Corporate/Technical Trainer?

2 comments

Hello,

I am curious if any former K-12 Teachers have switched careers from public teaching to corporate training/technical training. I am currently a high school computer/business education instructor with a plethora of technical expertise. Sadly, my school finds it of no use and only wants to target “No Child Left Behind” standards. What are some similarities and differences between the positions? Working conditions? Expectations? Are you earning more in your salary? Opportunites for growth? Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Kevin

I say no matter how bad public schools are, corporate is worse. Many people leave corporate to be teachers. My advice is to take a breaka and focus on what’s important, don’t let the standards bs bog you down. Of course I am bias, since I am in a teacher ed prog now. :)

its nice idea to change over to technical teaching, and salary is also more. but environment in corporate is totally different from public schools. some what difficult to adapt new situation.
