Sometimes I feel I would be better suited for a career in higher education administration. However, I stay because there are a great deal of things I like about education. I like having most of my students happy to see me and to learn something. I enjoy the hours and I even actually like my salary. The main reasons I think about quitting have to do with student attitudes, the shirking of responsibility, NCLB and issues with student laziness. In your own case, have you ever thought about leaving teaching for another career? If so, what are your reasons for wanting to stay and possibly wanting to leave?
