What do you do now and why do you want to be a teacher?

Well I would like to know if its a rewarding career and things like that. I dont see myself sitting behind a desk at a computer all day for the rest of my life. I think it would be interesting to have a feeling of actually doing something productive and good (teaching kids). I want to know how people feel about their career choice as a teacher. The good and bad.

It's ridiculously rewarding. I love my job (high school teacher). I love (most of) my students and feel like a lot of them actually realize and appreciate the impact I have on their lives.

I hate the bullshit that goes along with teaching, especially in a state that is 48th or 49th in spending on education.

But there's bullshit in any job. You just hope you find a job where the other stuff outweighs it. Best of luck to you. I'd recommend the education at the state university where i got my degree but the education dept is being CUT!!!!!! Oh, the irony.

Thanks for starting the thread. I'm looking to start an educational master after next year(or maybe the year after that if I miss too many subjects) as well.

I just would like to make a difference in the kid's lives... add something to it. It'd feel like my life actually serves a purpose or so I guess.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...
