Hi everyone. I posted awhile back on this forum asking for advice one way or another about going to school to get my Master's in Elementary Education. I've wanted to be a teacher all my life, a dream job. I was only in grad school for 2 months when I had to drop out. First of all, it was part my fault for going into a Master's program with no prior experience in teaching. My Bachelor's is in Business. But the big reason I had to drop out was because I was failing out. I was failing out because almost all of our assignments had to do with working directly with kids. The huge problem for me was that I literally know NO kids. NONE. ZERO. I live in an apartment with other adults, and at 23 years old I'm still the baby of the family (at least living in the same state). I asked my professors every class time to possibly help place me somewhere, but they said I had to do it on my own. I spoke with my advisor and he questioned me like I was a weirdo because I don't know any kids. They encouraged me to drop out instead of having a failure on my academic record. I just wanted to get this off my chest. This happened last October and I still sometimes feel horrible that I can't be a teacher, just because I don't know any kids to work with. But it was also a mistake of mine to jump into a program when I didn't know the technicalities about it. I assumed I could go into school and learn how to work with children and then be placed somewhere, or at least be helped to be placed somewhere.
