I'm a high school Senior, and I just declared my college major in Middle Childhood Education- Language Arts and Mathematics. I am minoring in Spanish. I am curious as to how many of you are teaching a subject you once despised? I grew up hating math - utter loathing. I told my seventh grade math teacher that I was never going into a math field, but now, in all likelihood, I'm going to be a math teacher... and I'm alright with that. I'm still not too fond of my current math class-Calculus is a shock at first. However, I started tutoring an ESL student in math this year, and I like it. I remember struggling in math, and it feels good to help someone else avoid my fate. So, I'm curious: Is anyone else here teaching a subject they once loathed... and liking it?
