What are the job opportunities in educational software, such as selling, marketing, etc.?
Before I research this, I wanted to ask the Yahoo! Answers community first. I am a fully credentialed special ed. teacher in mild/moderate disabilities in Southern California. I am currently pursuing my masters in Educational Therapy at one of the California State Universities. Because of my daughter's vast software collection and my own internet knowledge, I am very familiar with many educational software programs as well as educational freeware websites.

Let me add that I am also an experienced puppeteer who can build his own foam and cloth puppets for potential clients. Can anyone out there share any information on marketing educational software?
