"If you were to get an M.Ed...you would be pigeonholed into Educational Management of some sort."
This was one response to my post in March about what degree to pursue. The other response (as well as the one quoted above) was in favor of a degree that included licensure.
I promise that I'm not just being contrary, but I think that the first thing I'll do is apply to an M.Ed. program at Endicott. I'm not ruling out a degree (LMHC, MSW) that includes a licensing piece. I just want to pursue the M.Ed. now, to have that exposure to the principles and realities of management.
I think that someday I hope to start my own facility, providing respite/child care to folks who struggle to parent children with mental health issues. Not sure exactly whom I'll be able to employ, however!
