What I enjoyed about teaching
Teacher (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – June 15, 2017
I enjoyed interacting with the students. Working as a middle school teacher stretched me, as I had to always study a little harder in order to stay prepared and have an available wealth of knowledge for the students.
I enjoyed the down time, in which I had the opportunity to prepare lessons, and read up on various topics, prior to presenting a lesson to the students.
The hardest part of the job, was probably having to take work home ( tests, quizzes, and projects), which had to be read, corrected, and of course, I would always write comments about each of the students work.
Another thing which was not a bright spot, was when students were blatantly disrespectful, and cursed in the class, or disregarded the classroom rules. It made for an unfortunate situation for the students who wished to learn.
Having to do hallway duty and lunch duty was not one of my favorite things as a teacher.
The pay could have been better.
