Mr. Evolving Teacher
Hello! I am a credentialed public school teacher looking to leap into the next phase of my (changing) career. I have spent the past 3 years teaching economics at the high school level; prior to that, I taught world history at the middle school level. In a former life, I was a copywriter/editor at multiple corporations.
It has been several years since I studied at the undergraduate or graduate level. Also, my M.A. degree was earned through a Ph.D. program. How do both of these factors impact my chances? Thank you!
