Hi, I am a senior in highschool and have worked at an afterschool care at an elementary school for over a year. Over the past many months I have thought alot about what i want to do with my life. Originally, I wanted to become a doctor. But the more I think about it now, I want to become a doctor less, and a teacher more. I have worked with elementary school children for over a year and I love it. I know being a teacher is nothing like it, but just teaching the kids and helping them has brought alot of happiness to my life. I have been told I am great helping the kids as well. I thought this would be a great place to ask, as this place seems to have many very gifted and dedicated teachers, would teaching be for me? I have read some people talk about how months into there first year of teaching they already hate it. This worries me. While I can only imagine the stress and work that comes with the job, is it bad enough to want you to quit after doing all the work to become one? I know this might not be the best time and place to ask, but I really have seriously been thinking about this. As I have already been getting acceptance letters in from colleges, I know that before I realize it I will have to make a decision on my future. Would teaching be right for me?
