Are you currently teacher the subject and/or grade level that you originally wanted to teach? Is there a grade level or subject you expected to hate that you ended up enjoying? Or perhaps one that you expected to love but ended up not liking so much after all? My Answer: I started off teaching two-year-olds and toddlers and was certain that I didn't want to work with kids any older than that. Then I taught in a home daycare setting with several older preschool age students and really enjoyed my 4-5 year olds. Now I am teaching 3rd-5th graders and while I don't think it is my ideal, I am enjoying a lot more than I expected, I love being able to hold conversations with my students. I am still very wary of older students- I will have to do an 8-week placement in either a middle or high school for my SPED license and I am terrified at the prospect. :unsure: So, what about you guys?
