I want to be the superteacher.

Bad Economy Filter: In college now, will graduate in 2012 and aim to teach art. The caveat is that it will have taken me 6 years to graduate my undergraduate program because of transferring schools and all the confusion that new majors comes along with. So, here's my question... how do I give myself a leg up? Perhaps superfluous details inside. [more inside]

HELP me help a TEACHER!

Help me help a TEACHER! I have a friend who has 25 years experience teaching French and German in a private school. She's a talented and extremely hard-working teacher, but receives little support, compensation (low-pay), and respect from the school's all male administrators. She feels very stuck-- and unable to change her situation. If she switched over to public schools, she'd likely have to start over, in terms of retirement years put in. And, like most teachers, she takes a LOT of work home-- and puts in 8-12 hours every weekend grading papers and even offering free tutoring. All of this is NOT compensated. She does it because she's diligent and loves her kids. I've been trying to convince her that her skills are VALUABLE and the PRIVATE SECTOR would love to have her language skills. AM I WRONG? Are there jobs in the corporate / non-profit / NGO fields which could use her French / German teaching / translation skills? I thank you and she'll thank you-- if we can help her get out of a dead-end job!
