Don't know if many of you read the interested in teaching forum so thought I'd ask here and create some activity Did any of you used to be in the software development business and change to teaching? I've been in it for 15+ years and a bit disillusioned at the moment, giving serious consideration to training to teach computer science as teaching is something I feel strongly about and I believe I have a lot to offer. Just wondered if anyone had thoughts on this kind of switch. It feels a good option at my time of life (apart from the big salary cut!) and if it doesn't work I still have my current profession to fall back to.
