Teacher seeks your advice!

  1. Mar 13, 2012 #1
    I am a public school teacher and make 50k living in Houston. Last year I earned an award for best teacher at my school, but I want to do something more challenging. I just got accepted to the engineering program at University of Houston. I will be pursuing my second bachelor's degree.

    1) I speak fluent Spanish. I want to work in an engineering field that allows me to use my language as part of my job. I'm very good at working with other people.

    2) I'm currently making close to 55k if i teach summer school so I want to choose something where I can make 75k+. Bad thing about teaching is that my salary will pretty much stay the same until I retire.......which is a long time from now lol

    3) I want a job that allows me to travel around the world.

    My teaching job provides me with a "steady paycheck" and its a little scary going back to school. I don't think there is anything wrong with teaching. However I feel that I can do more than just be a teacher. I'm considering Petroleum Engineering. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks guys!!!
