Aloha! I'm a freshman in college, elementary education major and next semester I'll be doing an observation class, where I go into an elementary classroom once a week and helping out. I'm really excited but also really nervous that the stresses of being in the classroom will turn me off to teaching. I love working with kids and consider myself a pretty upbeat and outgoing person but I know that teaching is not just running around, making paper snowflakes with kids. So, as experienced teachers, what are some of your favorite and least favorite parts of your jobs? What are some aspects of teaching that you were not expecting while you were still in college? Thank you so much and have a happy Thanksgiving!
