Thanks everyone. I do teach in the military. I've been teaching 40 hours a week for the last three years. What I teach is acredited through the southern association of colleges, and provides my students with transferable college credit.
I'm not sure if I'm going to get my Doctorate or not, I'm just trying to see if it would be smart.
I've only been in the military for 9 years, and I plan on retiring.
I'll have a Masters by 2011... so I'm not quite there yet, just trying to make a long term plan.
I figured I might as well get a doctorates. Education is free for me, so why not?
I would eventually like to teach at the college level. I want to teach sciences. I figured if I get my Doctorate in Education I can go back and get a Masters in one of the sciences afterwards.
I have a BS in managment... general. Very General. I used to be a lab tech, and will stop teaching and return to the lab in two years. I thought about just getting the Master in education and then going back and getting a BS in laboratry technology followed by a Master's in Biology or Chemistry or something like that.
But then I thought it seems like less work to just get a doctorate in Education instead of going back and going through all those science classes.
I just don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
