I am a 30 year old married mom of two kids. I have been a teacher for 8 years. I started out wanting to be a nurse but after marrying young and starting a family I changed my major to teaching because it was a better fit for me back then. My husband promised me after the kids were more independent, I could go back to school for nursing. Don't get me wrong I love the time off teaching brings during the summers and holidays but I need a change. There is no way I could retire from teaching! I am happy to share I have been accepted to the Texas A&M University @ Corpus Christi Eline program and I start next week. I'm so excited to finish my original dream! Has anyone else been accepted to this program?

Congrats on being accepted!
I've been a teacher for 11 years but I've always wanted to be a nurse also. Everybody thinks teaching is so great for mothers but it's not. When my kids have fun stuff at school, so do my students. I miss everything they do...plus I'm so burned out with teaching. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only person wanting to leave teaching for a job that has been my dream for years.

Hey I too am / was a teacher starting an adn program next week. i just wanted to say you are not alone and I think having been teachers works in our advantage . We make excellent students. I too just began to hate the classroom and the beaurocracy. Looking foward to a 2 or 3 day work week and time with my kiddos and hubby.
