Since I’ve all the time love studying, college appeared to be the perfect place for a younger particular person resembling myself to thrive and excel. To start with, I did indeed do that—in part as a result of I chose to attend group faculty to get a basic two year degree after which transfer to a 4 year university. I was good enough to watch forward of time that I didn’t need to be in an enormous lecture hall with 800 students (which is the destiny for individuals who select to go straight to a 4 year school after graduating highschool), and that smaller courses meant a better high quality education. It additionally allowed me to bypass the stress of taking the SAT.
One of the largest issues I face nowadays is those little I-pads, telephones, I-telephones and so forth getting used within the classroom ALL the time. I waste half my class time disciplining and confiscating these annoynances. Technology is taking us backwards by way of social skills and actual thinking abilities as a result of if all you need to do is stare at a screen and faucet it all day, there will not be as a lot taking place up there.
WOW; I had no idea that teaching was this bad everywhere – I just completed by twenty fourth 12 months teaching history in Tennessee and now I hate my job. It use to be great; but starting with all of the special ed IEP’s and mainstreaming, then No Little one Left Behind, now the frequent core and all the evaluations – everyone is trying to get out.
Right now I’m working at a non-revenue for folks with developmental disabilities. It’s extremely, very low stress. Plenty of down time too. Pay is not one of the best, but might be worse too. I may develop into a city bus driver for MTA. I at all times appreciated driving and the pay is superb, plus you get additional time in order for you it. Not sure for sure, but will in all probability take the MTA position when the time comes.
