    Don't get me wrong I have a few great parents. But I have about 15% or so that make the job very very difficult.

    Re: Any Teachers Out There?

    The best is getting your kids excited about learning and being an influential part of their lives.

    The worst are... Dealing with parents, ineffective administrators, lazy kids, and a low national perception of teachers.

    A rewarding profession if you are willing to put in the thought, time, and effort. Some get into it because they percieve it is easy. Just like any job, it is easy if you are content to suck at it.

    Favorite: watching the kids mature/grow up and think critically/examine things as they progress.

    Least favorite: Bureaucracy and all of the **** being slung all the time. Also, inconsistencies in the schools.


    He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.

    This.

    I've only taught in college. My biggest advantage is that I have practical experience in my field, which allows me to relate the subject at an appropriate level with my students.
