What non-teaching jobs are available for a potentially laid off teacher?

My government has made severe cuts in education, due to that and the fact I'm only in my 2nd year of teaching the probability that I would be laid off is very high. I have a sociology degree and an education degree, but I'm struggling any job that asks for either. [more inside]

I am 85% certain I want to be a teacher

What I'd like to know now - before I jump into an alternative degree program - is what it's actually like being a teacher day in and day out. If I'm not going to be able to hack it, I'd rather know now. [more inside]

Looking for replies from those who changed careers to enter public education.

For a friend: If you have ever changed careers to become a public school teacher, I would love to hear your story, especially if you were already at the "married with children" stage of life when you made the switch. Are you happy with your choice? Do/did you regret it? What happened that you didn't expect? What was it like. Answers to any of or all of those questions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, as always.
