Elaine’s Answer

There is nothing hard about being a teacher of you are passionate about teaching and seeing students succeed. If your focus is always for the student and to meet each students individual needs for learning successfully you will work very hard but achieve much for your students. I guess it's those people who think that teaching cam be done by everyone, is easy and especially for the younger grades is cute. Just believe in yourself, don't be judgement all and be committed to do what is right for each student, speak up for your students and support your journey to that end. I didn't always follow the leader when u taught. I followed my heart and desire to be the best I could be for my students. I dig and point shows but real hard work to try to reach them all. Good luck to you. Teaching is the most rewarding profession I can every think of.

Elaine recommends the following next steps:

First decide why you want to teach
What do you have to examine and learn about yourself so you can be open to reach every student
Respect the profession and respect how important it is

Karen’s Answer

For me, the hardest part about being a teacher is that I want to help every student succeed and some may be dealing with difficult home situations which make it challenging for them to focus on school. In the end, you do what you can and realize you will never know the real impact you might be having.

Dalphne’s Answer

Some may say teaching does not have any challenges. There are difficulties in all professions. For me I find it very difficult to deal with administrators who micromanage teachers in a way that punishes them for their coworkers not completing assigned tasks/duties. Micromanaging can occur in all professions. You must weigh the good vs the challenging.

Gloria’s Answer

Hi Grace,

I have not been a teacher in primary education but in business. The main difference is that I have taught adults. I know enough primary school teachers to know that teaching has one central problem no matter what the age. If you teach more than one person, you are going to have the challenge that people learn differently. You need to be flexible and able to reach each person where they are. This can be difficult when you have large groups or if you have time deadlines to convey information. You will need to change your style to reach each person.
