The past year I have very dissatified with my job teaching and have seriously concitered quitting. My main issues are dealing with parents, student discipline problems and "the system" (i.e. state testing). Today I began thinking about becoming a media specialist. I love being around books and I feel like I'm pretty knowledgable about children's literature. When I began thinking about the job, I realised that there would be many benefits to it - no papers to grade, no report cards to fill out and mainly, no parents to deal with. I realize that it would also entail other jobs that I don't have to do now such as lunch duty and whatnot. I guess what I'm trying to ask is if anyone else has made this move from the classroom to the library and how they feel about it.
