I am 26 and an engineer. I've been out of school for about 4 years. I am currently working. About a year ago I went to an open house looking for potential teachers. I took the necessary math tests for Mass to teach and passed for high school math. I have no teacher related education - just my BS in engineering. Anyways, fast forward a year and I have a potential teaching position presented to me for physics. It is 10th grade, so no problem with the subject matter. They are willing to stick me with a mentor and start teaching the beginning of September. I have NO teaching experience whatsoever. I guess that physics teachers are really in demand lol. Am I crazy? I was drawn to teaching out of frustration with the 'corporate' life post-college. Not for me. I like people and fun and I like to be creative. I am looking forward to putting lesson plans together and being a crazy physics teacher haha. A lot of people have suggested it to me as a profession. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice. Should I get some classes behind my belt first? Spend more time in the classroom? This opportunity just kind of came my way and seems like it could be a good path to get into teaching. Sorry this is so long, TIA.
