Hi everyone. I am a male student who is going into education. I have taken all the general education requirerments and all classes that are necessary for graduation. Now I just have to choose one of three programs; elementary education, special education, or secondary education. I really love elementary education. I have been volunteering/working with students K-5 since I was 14 years old. I especially love the lower primary grades Kindergarten to 2nd grade. The 3 schools that I have been helping at have told me that I have a knack for younger kids. However, I am worried about the possibilities of finding a job. Every one tells me that each year the amount of elementary male teachers is falling. Does that mean that school do not want to hire them for some reason? I would love to teach elementary students, but I know that my passion will not account to much if I do not find a job. And I do know that in high schools in the surrounding districts, there are many male teachers.
