I'm curious about the inverse direction - how does one exit teaching in MOE? What types of jobs would welcome my (relatively limited?) skillset? Especially in today's job marketů seems rather difficult.

It was the best decision I made in my adulthood but I do miss teaching and I miss my students, as well as the bonuses.

However, I'm not ruling out the possibility that I will return to the service in the future. I am wondering if any one here quit and returned to becoming a MOE teacher again? How would MOE gauge your experience outside? Would there be a pay raise upon reentering the service or do you restart with the pay you got when you left the service?
