    Good afternoon everyone,

    I am about to graduate from university with a Bachelor's in Spanish, but not happy with my decision. I would love to be a teacher and have always wanted to teach, and yet, I have had this issue of what I want to teach since I began.
    I am not good with little kids. Never have been, but I really enjoy phonics and teaching simple things. Which honestly, there probably is not a job teaching adults such thing since adults already know that. Many say try teaching ESL because you are teaching English and could possibly teaching phonetics.
    I wouldn't know if that would be a good one or not? I just wanted to see if there is a specific pathway I could go looking towards.
    I was an elementary education major prior to my current major. I liked the idea of teaching kids, but I was not able to talk to the kids and be very "staged" and when they would speak to me I would just act awkward and unsure what to say. With older levels, I can actually act like me.
    Thanks everyone.

    What about teaching middle school Spanish?
