a) Principal or Administrator

As a principal you are the leader of your school, heavily influencing and shaping the culture and learning systems in place, serving as an aid or advisor to teachers, and ensuring that every student is getting the most out of their education while receiving the instruction and support they need to succeed.

b) School or Career Counselor

School counselors are an important presence at most elementary, middle and high schools. They help students who are struggling socially or who are having psychological issues or problems at home. They also assist students with academics, often acting as the main facilitator and mentor during the college application process. In almost all schools, a master’s degree is required to work as a school guidance counselor.

c) Corporate Trainer

Working as a corporate trainer is a great career option for M.Ed. holders who love to teach but would prefer to work in a more corporate environment with adults.

d) Educational Consultant

Working as an educational consultant offers teachers another alternative to working in the classroom every day. This can be a great second career after teaching or an option for educators looking to take a few years off from day-to-day teaching. To work as a consultant, most employers require a master’s degree along with actual teaching experience.
