* go back to teaching -
Pros: I love the day to day interactions with students, love teaching, summers off, same hours as Ilya when she is in school.
Cons: bad pay, no respect, angry parents who assume I am giving their child an F because I harbor some deep seeded desire for their child to be a failure rather than because their child doesn't actually understand the material, long hours.
* be an astronomer -
Pros: love astronomy, love math and physics, want to learn more about our universe, respect.
Cons: very hard to get a job, lots of school.
* be a computer programer -
Pros: work from home, flexible hours, great pay, respect, solving logic problems.
Cons: tedious, isolating, not sure I'm going to like it
* develop my tutoring company -
Pros: great pay, interesting work, already have a client base
Cons: working more hours than get paid for, unreliable
These are the major options that I've been thinking about. I would love to know what you, my faithful readers, think. Any other ideas.
