Teaching is a good gig but you have to be driven to do it.
It's mentally exhausting, pay is medium low, benefits are so/so, the kids are unappreciative and the bureaucracy is a PITA.

Best to get endorsed in a high need subject area like Math, Science or Special Ed. Avoid PE, Social Studies and Art. Those jobs are rare and competitive when they do open up.
