Аннотация к книге "We Switched Careers! Alternative Licensure Teachers' Journeys to the Classroom" Mervyn J. Wighting:
This book comprises the stories of twelve journeys: the road traveled by former business people, members of the military, pastors, engineers and bankers all of whom responded to the calling to become a teacher. Its purpose is to inspire others who might be contemplating a similar journey in order to transition into teaching.
Career Switchers are risk takers. In many instances they leave secure and well paid jobs in order to venture into the unknown world of education and they do this so that they can make a difference in the lives of children. They become students themselves to complete the coursework, they compete with all other candidates to get hired, and they subject themselves to the challenges of teaching instead of remaining in the comfort zone of their previous career.
Each of the twelve chapters tells a unique story, and the reader can rest assured that everything in each chapter is absolutely true!
