By day, I'm a Curriculum Technology Specialist at an elementary school; by night, I'm an adjunct English instructor at the local community college. I'm 52 and still trying to decide what I really want to do when I grow up.

Denver. Although I did grow up in Jeffco, hence my username.

So what's your take - Is it worth it? did you start out as cop? I'll stop now with scott1598 questions.

Re: What's Your Line? (Occupation of posting members)

work as a Server/Shift Leader for a national restaurant chain.

Not the most glamorous job, but been there long enough where I write the schedule and can pretty much call my own shots.

Most importantly this helps a lot with being able to take care of my 18 year old Autistic stepson

Don't forget to factor in working midnights, weekends and holidays.

I'm 20 years older than you and you still have 3 years' seniority over me!!!

Really interesting reading the range of occupations, but it helps to explain why the discourse is stimulating.

I do that now. It's called getting a job that allows you to work from home.

I think one of your former students may be key to the change you are looking for.
