Currently I'm getting recertified to teach and I am really questioning my choice becoming a teacher years ago. I now have kids of my own and when I intellectually think about it, it seems sort of crazy now. Maintain an entire classroom and balance a family life/home for my own children. Maybe I'm overthinking this and it'll just sort of work out? Besides the financial aspect, why wasn't this forewarned to us when we were all young and single and trying to save the world by becoming teachers?
