Question by Marnie_Australia: I want some career advice…?
I am currently working as a high school teacher. I have qualifications in Education and Information Technology. I have previously worked in tutoring, sales, and customer service.
I would love to do something full time with kids that isn’t teaching. I enjoy working with them on a one on one basis, like a counselling or mentor role, but less formal.
I am studying a life coaching course, and would love to work in film or TV production or photography.
I prefer to work alone rather than as part of a team. I also enjoy working at my pace. I would love to manage myself in something.

It sounds like you need to start your own business in something -is it possible to try and tap into kids working at a gifted level in IT – either high school or college and act as a project mentor for them?
Another option would be to take appropriate students from school setting and as a project have them solve IT issues within a commercial company and have you as project mentor – I know we have a program in Aus that involves having highschool kids solve specific problems within a 2 week placement within a commerical company.
Hope I helped!
