I totally agree with your points about the education system and how teaching is really not as good of a job when compared to the more flexible hours of so many other professions. I would love to be a part time teacher, it would really help with my current health conditions and childcare situation but teacher job sharing positions are practically unheard of. So instead I’m currently an instructional assistant, but with a teaching credential and a masters who spends my days following the instruction of another teacher because then I can leave at lunchtime.

It would be amazing if there were more part time teaching opportunities.

Thanks for writing.
