Re: Anyone else thinking of a career change?
I know there are similarities though...That's part of the reason I chose it. I know a lot of my skills will transfer. There are a lot of things I love about teaching and I think these will carry over. The nice thing about speech pathology is there is a huge need for them pretty much everywhere. Being stuck in a job you don't like is probably much less common than in the music ed field. Plus, its a diverse field that allows you to work in many different settings. Yes, there are some public school jobs where you get overloaded with clients, but there are tons of jobs outside of schools that this is not the case for and pay VASTLY better than teaching. So, yes, I'm happy with my choice. Best of luck in your career.
