Education careers that take you out of the classroom

Don’t Want to be in the Classroom? Try One of These Careers in Education Instead

Often during my advising appointments with students here at Middlebury, I speak with students about how much they enjoy the direct experiences they’ve had working with youth during summer camp counseling jobs or through their volunteer mentoring, but have the distinct knowledge that they don’t want to be teaching in a classroom. What advice could I give them? So when I came across this article by on the Idealist.org Careers job search blog, I thought it fitting for students to help explore the many different ways one can go about staying in an education-related job without having to be in front of the classroom. Check out the article and its many links to cool opportunities here.
