Chalk Talk: Should You Become a Teacher?
Is it time to think about what you would like to do as a career and you are thinking about teaching? It is a requirement for all teachers to “love kids,” but there is much more to it than just that. Even if you enjoy playing with and baby-sitting your little siblings, nieces and nephews, neighbors’’ children, etc., teaching is about instilling knowledge in kids and shaping their future. Generally, teaching is a rather low-paying position, especially when you are just starting out, so make sure it is something you are truly passionate about. You will not be rewarded by becoming rich but by making a difference in children’s lives. Also, there is sometimes a perception that teaching, particularly at the elementary level, is an “easy” job with time off for holidays and the summer months as well as decent hours. This cannot be farther from the truth, as teachers have to dedicate hours outside of the classroom to designing lesson plans, creating instructional materials, grading work, communicating with parents, shaping their classroom management plan, reading research, and looking for classroom ideas.
