No, I don't plan on having a Doctorate's degree. I just got my Bachelor's degree finished and I plan on starting on my Master's next Summer.
A phD program typically takes eight years (no shorter than that, and sometimes even longer), and I think that's way too long and expensive for a degree. It won't increase my teaching wage much higher and I feel like I would be smothered by student loans.
It's a cool idea. But I don't see the point of it in my career, as an English Arts teacher for adolescents (grades 7-12.)
