Have any classroom teachers here changed or shifted careers? I'm a former k-1 teacher (but have taught everything from k-8) and a current Sahm. I was pretty burned out when I left and I'm pretty sure I don't want to go back to elementary classroom teaching when I return to work.

I have a few years before I will go back to work to take classes/add a certification etc, but I'm not sure what to focus on. I love education/child development/learning theory, but my least favorite aspect of my job was classroom management. Some thoughts have been reading specialist, instructional design, corporate training, social work, HR....but I'm open to other ideas!

Have any teachers successfully transitioned out of classroom teaching into something else?
