I am a reading specialist and instructional coach at the elementary level. Earning your masters in literacy or math would be beneficial in the gen ed classroom, working in early childhood, or becoming an academic specialist.
In my district, an endorsement is required for positions such as math, reading or ESL. Instructional coaches either have a specialized endorsement and lots of experience, or sometimes a masters in curriculum and instruction. Our district level content admin all have that degree and/or an admin certificate.

I love my job and couldnít see myself doing anything else. I think you canít really go wrong with a content masters. But I would do it because you love teaching the content, not because of the current job market since that can change.
