Hi, I'm currently a Secondary School Teacher, am 24 years old and am considering leaving this profession to join the army as an officer. I've been teaching 3 years and have been very successful so far, becoming head of department with extra pay etc. Has anyone else made a similar decision!? I have a comfortable life but know I would have much more fulfilling experiences in the Army. I'm just a bit worried that I'm being 'foolish' in leaving when I'm doing well, and starting something new. I'm also concerned that if I decide to leave after the required 4 years, that I won't be able to get back into teaching and may have chucked away all my opportunities! Hence being worried about being a fool here. Any advice/guidance of anyone who has been in a similar situation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
