Some career change options for teachers include starting a private tutoring business and becoming an education program director in a museum, aquarium or zoo. Another option is creating educational materials, such as worksheets and test papers.
An alternative to traditional classroom teaching is a position as a prison or children's hospital teacher. Teachers with other skills, such as photography, music or art, might enjoy a career teaching private lessons in these fields. A large number of nonprofit organizations also hire teachers to run education projects for at-risk and under-privileged children. Teaching skills sometimes even transfer over to business areas such as sales and real estate.
