becoming a teacher

Since I don’t have much to blog about these days, I’m going to bring you on the journey of becoming a teacher in Ireland.

First of all, why do I want to become a teacher? Lets look at the pros and cons of going down the road of teaching.

The Cons

  • Dealing with kids all day
  • Some kids don’t like to learn
  • The pay
  • Bureaucracy
  • The nicknames
  • Dealing with parents
  • Lack of respect among other educated professionals
  • Car getting keyed
  • Early mornings
  • Uncertainty in the current economic climate
The Pros
  • Teaching people
  • June
  • Influencing them to do my bidding once they have grown up (may involve subliminal messaging in my teaching methods.. haven’t quite figured this one out yet.. I’ll keep you posted)
  • July
  • Job satisfaction
  • August
  • Job security once you have one

So I’ve now talked myself into taking the first steps and consciously making the decision to become a teacher. What is next?

I need to be trained. More next time..
