I'm passionate about teaching. But, can't rely on the income.
Pros: low income. job-insecurity.
Cons: i feel like i'm making a difference in people's lives. i really love teaching!
I love being an educator, I've worked in an instructional position, of some sort, for the past decade. My day involves multiple tasks; curriculum planning, physical activity, time-management, data entry (grades, disciplinary forms, etc.), presentation of materials, clear and concise communication with students, parents, administration, and co-workers, – more... and maintaining a sense of humor, and a positive attitude.
It is heartbreaking to see someone who feels insignificant. And it frustrates me when people make excuses, instead figuring out solutions.
I have become a much better listener because of my work with youth. I also love feeling like I've positively impacted someone's life. I find great joy in problem-solving, and helping others achieve their goals. – less
