NEW CAREER IDEAS FOR MOMS AND PARENTS




When you become a parent you may want to take a different career path than the one you were on. As a parent your priorities sometimes shift from being career driven to family driven. While you are providing for your family you can pursue other career ideas and still be there for your children. Here are a few ideas that you can try to see which fits for you:

Work At Home Mom Careers
There are several ways you can work from home as a mother. Many businesses are turning to telecommuting as a main drive for their call centers and administrative tasks. Some outside sales agents work primarily from their homes as well. There's a wide variety of work from home career choices you can choose. More and more parents are finding that working from home is their best option. They can work as a call center customer service representative, a virtual assistant, a blogger or marketer from the comfort of their home. They can be there for their children and still earn an income to help with the family finances.

Ultra Sound Technician
There are also many who pursue careers in the medical field such as an ultra sound technician or in nursing. You can find a great ultrasound technician school close to your home and be working in a few years. There are even schools that offer the majority of their classes online. You can continue working or staying home while learning a new trade and a way to better your career choices.

Online Auction Stores
You can create your own store online in one of the many auction sites. Many moms, and even dads, have a talent they can use to create their own store. They can create jewelry, wood working items, photos and much more to sell to others. Maybe you just like selling items that you are no longer in need of. This is a great place to do that too.

Teacher
Some parents like to teach others and help the students reach their goals. Some decided to pursue an education degree so they can do just that. While this is sometimes a thankless job, many teachers love what they do and enjoy the schedule it provides. They can be pretty much on the same schedule as their children are and have the same vacation days.

Computer Support
If you love computers this might be the job for you. This can be worked in a call center atmosphere at your home or you can work for a company. This typically is a good job to go into because everyone uses computers and needs that support. If computers are your thing and you work well with them, you might want to consider going to your local college to get a degree in computer science. You can learn how to write programs, develop websites and much more to help your community and the businesses around you.
You can work from home or you can pursue a career outside of the home. The options for both are as limited as your vision and dreams are. Check out a few ideas that might work out for you.

12 Common Reading Errors and How to Overcome Them

Reading is the act of making meaning from the printed word, symbols or pictures in one's environment. Children are often taught to read formally using a multifaceted approach which involves word recognition, comprehension, fluency and motivation. As they grow and as their reading exposures increase many begin to struggle and are soon left behind if they do not form meaningul connections. Teachers must be able to find those who have not quite gotten the hang of reading and to make attempts to assist them. There are many reasons why the act of reading may be difficult for some, nevertheless, it is important to find the possible causes and to employ corrective measures to help overcome them. In my 24 years of teaching I have used many different reading strategies in my classroom, however, I believe that the most powerful tool a teacher can use with her students is actually listening to them read and individually note their progress.   This article summarizes 12 common errors t

How To Teach Creative Writing To Young Children

Teaching children to write creatively is not something that you can complete at any one particular grade level. It involves a series of planned situations and activities that gradually lead to independent writing. From as early as preschool a child's writing begins to take shape as he learns to interpret print. As he grows his understanding of that print is translated into a greater command of the language. Essentially, as he progresses through the grade levels his writing unfolds as a more personal stamp. As a teacher my goal is to d evelop the writing skills  of my students. This means that I must slowly direct each child to writing independently. To do so I must model good writing, write with them collaboratively, guide their efforts and allow them to work on their own. These stages are summed up under the following headings: Modeled Writing Shared Writing Guided Writing Independent Writing 1. Modeled Writing In this initial step I must
