I bring this up, because I have a first year teaching job in high school and I can't seem tone down the rigor of content I teach my students. I have students failing left and right and I have only been on the job for about 6 weeks. It seems like I have so many issues when it comes to my classes that correcting enough of them might be too tall of an order for me. Correct me if I'm wrong about college teaching, but what I would say is that there is less of certain things to worry about as a college professor as opposed to a high school teacher. For one, you don't really have to worry about classroom management since college students pick and choose when their classes are and are paying for their education. Being the personality type that I am, I find it hard for me to develop the attitude necessary to handle the behaviors of a high school students. Doesn't mean I'm giving up, but what I'm saying is that I feel my disposition towards students wouldn't really lend itself to managing behaviors of a classroom. My personality isn't ever going to change, so doing high school may not be for me. I would say another thing about teaching high school that might make it harder than college is that lectures are more of a routine in college whereas high school everything must be planned using more of a student centered approach. No longer is it as easy as throwing an inquiry lecture together and powerpointing high school students to death. This is really my issue and I just don't know any other way to maintain student centered learning. Sure I may throw together a good idea here or there, but it stems mostly from the fact that is the only good ideas I have. Since I consider myself merely average in my content knowledge, I find that lectures work better for me than having students do engaging activities. Also I think with college, it's easier to manage your time and you never have administrator walkthroughs that are evaluating your performance each month. You know what needs to be done and it's easier to pace the material you cover since each class only meets on specified days. Is any of what I'm saying true at all or am I fabricating this all? I feel like I work much harder than the average person, but I feel having a learning disability will hamper my ability to grow as a teacher. I don't apply advice well and I might be better suited for a college teaching job since there is less in the way of invasive teaching strategies that must be incorporated.
