   Hi, I haven't posted much on this forum and just wanted to ask a few questions. I am a senior getting my bachelor of the arts in psychology. I wanted to know what information people have on teaching psychology in high school. I have been seriously thinking about taking that career path.

   What is the job market like for high school psychology teaching jobs? What is the best masters degree to get to start teaching high school? I plan on getting my doctorates down the road but wanted to get some experience in the field to see if that is truly what I want to do as a career. Also, how many schools are looking for a psychology teacher? I don't want to jump into a field that I cannot get a job in and keep it.  

   I'm really worried that the teaching field may not be a field with many psychology jobs available. Please provide any info you have.


Thanks,
PE

Hi evanship, I'm sort of in the same boat as you are... I'll be graduating in a year, and have no idea what I want to do. I don't think I'll be able to share any advice I might have as I'm from The Netherlands and looking at the Dutch market, :( I hope you'll be able to find something, though!
