Specialist in Curriculum and Instruction

Hello all!

I am a newbie to the board and a newbie to the teaching profession. I have been teaching middle school math for the past two years and I love it. I always try to think long range though and I am wondering what are my options if I decide to get a specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction.

Has anyone done this? Were you able to move into consulting, a district position, textbook proofing, Vice Principal of Curriculum and Instruction? I would appreciate any feedback!

Thanks in advance!

Would this degree come with additional certifications? I believe in Illinois you'd want an admin/principal license to get into VP or district positions.

Generally speaking you would want some sort of supervisory certification in order to be an instructional leader within a district. However, this is not always the case. When I supervised a reading program I was a "teacher on special assignment." You may be able to find a similar position in a larger district.

If I go for the Administrative Leadership Specialist degree and I don't get an Admin position, I will not receive an increase. If I get a specialist degree in other areas, such as C&I, I will get the increase. I want to make a wise investment in my career.

I was wondering what the real opportunities are in C&I. Consulting? Designing curriculum? Textbook proofing/review?

Thank you all for responding!
