The two jobs that most interest me when I went over my strong interest inventory results were Special education teacher and College Instructor. They both are very good jobs and they are very rewarding. Special education teachers work with youths and children that are mentally challenged. Special education teachers work with kids with mild to moderate disabilities, modifying or using the general education curriculum (BLS, 2009). Special education teachers use the curriculum to meet each and every child’s needs and they provide the required remedial instruction (BLS, 2009). Special education teachers, teaches children at every level and they also work with Infants and toddlers (BLS, 2009).
When researching the salary for a special education teacher it showed me the median annual wages that they received in May 2008. Special education teachers that worked primarily with preschoolers, kindergartens and elementary students averaged about $50,000 a year (BLS, 2009). 50 percent earned between $40,485 and $63,550, the ones in the middle received this amount (BLS, 2009). 10 percent of special education teachers earned the lowest of $33,775 (BLS, 2009). $78,985 was the highest earned by 10 percent of special education teachers (BLS, 2009).
Both of these jobs are very rewarding, the thing that I find appealing about each job is that I get to help and teach many different people. The thing that I find that might be challenging about these jobs that they can be emotionally demanding, stressful and physically draining. Also there are a lot of administrative tasks involved. I love to teach, I teach my kids. I sit in my kid’s classroom and help the teacher with the students. I currently work with individuals who are disabled. In the past I was a manager at a restaurant and a personal assistant. My degree will be in Criminal Justice once I finish my degree in a few months. Then I will be moving on to pursuing my master’s degree in education.
