I am currently a senior in high school, and I am doing an essay on teaching (as I am hoping to become a teacher myself ). I am focusing on why to become a teacher and some of the highs and lows of teaching. This activity is for my benefit as well as for the class. I am looking forward to how people will respond and hope that I will get numerous responses. So if you please could take some time from your very busy schedules to answer some or all of the questions below I would really appreciate it, like tons please reply with your responses and any other helpful information any response I can get will be very helpful, and as usual the more detailed and more people the better :thanks: in advance ---------------------- How long have you been teaching? Where and what are you teaching? What made you choose teaching as a profession in the first place? Was it a hard decision? What do you think is the most rewarding part of teaching? What have been some of the struggles you have faced while teaching? Who was your biggest role model when you began teaching and why? What have been some bumps in the road that have not been expected concerning teaching? I’ve heard that some things just cannot be taught in a classroom about teaching; like for instance planning for interruptions, and such, what have been some of these incidences? What has been the hardest thing about teaching? The easiest? Would you ever give teaching up, if you could go back and change it would you? If you were to compare teaching to a concrete object what would it be and why?
