The guys over at TNTJ have a blog post idea – and a good one it is too; tell us your dream job in journalism.
Sometimes I think I already have my dream job, except for being able to do journalism myself. I am a high school journalism teacher, as you may already know if you read my blog. I teach in a mid-sized high school and am the sole journalism teacher at my campus. I teach it all from video to print and web in between. I really enjoy my job most every day. I like to teach and share journalistic skills with my students.
But if I could do any other job, it would probably be to work at a small college doing the exact same thing I do now, only with the ability to work for a publication on the side and produce a story or two a week. I would be able to teach, only with a smaller load and be a working journalist too.
I’m not sure the position exists, but if it did it would be the only one that could tempt me away from my current job.
