I am thinking on becoming a teacher. What I want to know is how did you all decide to become teachers? What was the basis for your decision? Did you have doubts? Did you know you would have the patience and the organizational skills needed. I am plagued by doubt even though I am 33 years old and the mother of an 11 year old daughter. How did you know you had what it takes? I feel so bad that I am not sure. Shouldn't I know by now what I want to be? Please help.
