No other profession gives you so much "bang for the buck" to get a MA than
education. Of course you learn, but the pay increase over the years of
your career is substantial for just an extra year or so of school. I think
teachers stay "juiced up" by continually picking up hours. I'm at MA plus
45, and it gets to be more fun all the time.
If you just got out, I know you're probably sick of school... Give it a
rest for a bit then go back.
