I am currently a spanish teacher, and I would like to know if I should get my master degree in Reading vs Esol? I would like to know which would offer my more mobility in my career, less stress, and job opportunities....Thank you so much for your help. I live in MD/DC area. Note...I only have the praxis to be the esol teacher on record. I need a master's in reading to be the teacher on record. Also I was thinking of changing from teaching to speech pathology all together.

I think the Praxis test is like $135.

A master's degree would be much more expensive...but it would move you over on the pay scale.

What is your goal? Do you just want out of the classroom? Or more pay?

To be honest, I'd probably do both. It will give you so many more opportunities.

the web site for American Speech, Language and Hearing Association [ASHA]. Its the big speech pathology info site. You can see employment possibilities, etc.
Speech paths work in schools, hospitals, and private practice.
Lots of opportunities. With an aging population, lots of opportunities.
