This is a great question. In my experience, it may be better to get a Bachelors Degree right now and take some time to get experience before getting a Masters Degree. I received a Bachelors Degree and changed careers a few years later. It wasn't until I spent a few years in my new career exploring my options that I went back to get a Masters Degree. Before investing more time and money, you want to be sure about what you want do with your degree. Another thing to consider is that many employers will reimburse you for tuition. You can work a few years, get experience and receive help with the financing portion of your Masters Degree. It also depends on the career you eventually want to have. You may need the additional degree(s) to advance your career. You will want to take your time and do your research so you can make the right decision in the end. Good Luck! #college #bachelors-degree #masters-degree
Hello, I actually used to be a COO at an online education company and I would always look at resumes from teachers that had masters degrees. You also have a higher earning potential in some states. Also, I hired some of the best performing teachers who had masters to be on my team in my office once they decided they wanted to move on from the classroom. I think you have more potential to be hired if you decide you don't want to teach anymore.
