Is it worth it?

Apple - I have always liked what the apple represents for teachers. This is what I will miss for teaching college.

I'm currently attending classes online in order to become a teacher. For about a year I was a substitute teacher and from the experience I learned that I didn't want to teach at K-12 schools. I decided I want to teach at a community college or university. In order for me to do this, I must complete a Bachelor's degree and Master's degree. Is this worth it? I don't have to be certified to teach in college like I have to be to teack in K-12 schools. I have a year left before I finish my BA and then two to three years to finish my masters. Is anyone in the same situation even if it's not with teaching?

I am currently working as a Training and Quality Manager in a BPO in the Philippines. I started out as a frontline agent and got promoted to Tier II after 8 months. I really worked hard to learn things that I need to learn for my current position and learn things for my next post. I was an undergraduate when I got promoted to Training. I decided to finish the course and took another course. Got promoted to Training Sup and I pursued MBA. Then I got promoted. I am enjoying school and I am enjoying the learning. And i know it prepares me for my next position. Good day!

I think it would be worth it. I would look at it this way...if I quite now, how much time would I have wasted up till now with my education. What is your major?? Maybe your options will be more open then you pressume.
