Tricia’s Answer

Hi Hannan, I work for an Ed Tech company and companies like ours are always looking for people with an Education background. Some folks come to us with teaching experience which is very valuable, but an Education degree is a good step forward because you will understand our market, our customer needs, how curriculum is structured, how classrooms are managed, the challenges teachers face, etc. You will 'speak the language' of education and be able to share your experiences in the interviewing process. We have many different roles, sales/marketing/product specialist, which may be of interest to you as you explore how to use your Education degree outside of the classroom. The people at our company are passionate about what we do because we know we are making a difference for kids. Good luck!

Simeon’s Answer

You could pursue teaching, but you could also pursue a path in education administration. There is also the possibility that you could do tutoring, digital online course creation, or non-profit teaching work for underserved populations.

Saxonny’s Answer

Hi Hannan,

With a degree in education you can take a variety of paths. I got an undergrad degree in math and masters in education and taught for 6 years before moving into business development/customer success management. I'm no longer a math teacher however my experience helped me hone foundational skills which I continue to use in my personal and professional life. For example you'll learn to break down complex ideas and explain them in simplified terms, develop patience and empathy while working with students who struggle to grasp certain concepts, develop strong presentation skills by preparing and delivering lessons to your students. I also worked on my time management, organizational, communication, conflict resolution skills. The foundational skills acquired in the classroom will help you even if you decide to move onto a different career. Other options could include corporate learning and development, curriculum development, research, etc.

valerie’s Answer

good morning, Hannah, thankyou for asking the question.

many people want the luxury of teaching: summers off, holidays off; other reasons. if you have a valid passion for children and seeing them learn, you can use the degree in ways other than the classroom. the joy of seeing a human being grow because you invested in their lives is very rewarding. I hear the pay isn't commensurate to the outpour of love, but you must evaluate what your priority is.
