  • There are two aspects:
    1 - face time in the classroom


    2 - the prep time and / or follow-up time (grading assignments / tests, etc.)

    There are other jobs with remote/ telework capabilities that make the classroom less desirable than in years past.

    Student behavioral control might be a major factor for some newer Teachers also.

    It helps to have worked other jobs in advance of becoming a Teacher, for a better sense of personal "compare & contrast".
