Job decision – Follow-up question


So I got the feedback in my last question that either decision – staying in my current job as an educational administrator vs. going back into the classroom – could make me happy 50% of the time. I’m still finding it hard to decide because I want to do the teaching to be able to work directly with and impact students’ lives whereas I don’t get to do this in my current job. I guess the question or fear is that I won’t be able to make the impact that I want, I’ll burn out and make less money. And I am really unhappy in my current role because I can’t see the impact I make, and I feel like I am just pushing paper and dealing with nonsense all day. I want to teach, but I’m worried I’ll be letting my family down if I come home more stressed and burned out – but for different reasons – while still making less money.
