vet would be a good choice, but it takes a lot of money and time. so what im doing is going into the police force and becoming a K-9 unit officer and mounted police officer. it combines two of my favorite things.
You could become an daycare provider, in your own home. You would have your own business, your work would cone to you, and you don't need a college education. You do have to take some training to get started, have your home child proofed, and have a day care licensor come to visit your home. Get ahold of your County licensor and they can help you with the process. Like already mentioned above, it takes a special person to work with children, and daycare is good in many different ways. I have a friend that has been doing this in her home for 15 years, and she has a successful business and career doing daycare. I hope that you find something that you enjoy doing. Have a good day. :)
It's extremely difficult to find a teaching job at this time. McKinney ISD had 13,000 active applications for the 2010-2011 school year. Many districts aren't even open for substitutes, because they have too many already. Frisco, Tx is a current example of this.
Special Ed is an area of greater need at this time.
Study hard and pass the habit along to out future generation. The saying, Kill two birds with one stone, comes to mind. You could become a Teacher of whatever age children you feel best with and have a mini farm in the class. You can use it as a teaching tool by having the kids feed and care for the animals. Rabbits, Ginneypigs, Birds Ant farms and fish tank are all good choices. All could be taken care of by the kids and on the weekends they could take turns caring for them at home and you could take care of them as well. Trips to the zoo and museum will allow you to teach children where animals come from.
