I'm already doing it! I'm a teacher, and there is nothing else in the world I'd rather be doing. That being said, the only thing I would probably do differently is choose a different subject area. Being a high school English teacher (ESL), my at-home work load is incredible. I am constantly grading papers or re-reading the texts I teach. But I have the joy of turning these students into skilled writers before my very eyes. It is my favorite unit to teach, though my least favorite to grade. ;)
I would really like to become a 5th grade teacher. English is my favorite subject by far, but I'd like to be a 5th grade teacher because it's their last year really being a kid and having all your classmates in one class. I feel that some teachers don't do enough preparation for middle school! I'd also like to be an author on the side, maybe during the summer especially when I don't have a lot of work to do.
