I am in a real dilemma! I currently work in a highly successful middle school which is due to be closed in 2013 due to LEA streamlining of the three tier system to the two tier system. I am in my 3rd year of teaching following a 10 yr period in Sales and Marketing. Currently, I specialise in Yr 5&6 English & Maths and as of September, will be Head of ICT teaching Y5-8. I have to decide pretty soon which direction I am going to take - Primary or Secondary. I am quite career minded and relatively ambitious and would like to climb the management ladder sooner rather than later. I am slightly anxious about being in a Primary School having to plan and teach a wide range of the curriculum; conversely, Secondary offers clearly 'larger' challenges virtually and literally! Has anyone taught both Primary & Secondary? If so, which provides better work-life balance and career prospects? Sorry to ramble, but in a real pickle!
