Is being a kindergarten teacher a good job?
I'm in 8th grade. I have a class called career and technology. My teacher is having us do a project by asking questions about the careers we want to do when we get older. students career teaching k-12-education teacher
To be a kindergarten teacher, you must really enjoy working with kids and have a lot of patience! Since they are at an introductory grade level, everything is new to them. Kids are great to be around but everyone has their moments and it may not always be sunshine and rainbows. A teacher must be patient, caring, and understanding in order to create a fantastic classroom environment for everyone! All in all, it is of course a great job, but it is up to you to see what grade areas you would like to teach in and what suits you the best! I hope this answer helps!!
I personally think being a Kindergarten teacher is a great job! I think about my own Kindergarten teacher and I still remember her name and her soft demeanor. Most kids will potentially not have been in school prior to Kindergarten and their teacher will be able to set the foundation for their ongoing learning. In Kindergarten you learn how to listen, follow directions, and in general work in a classroom environment.
I would highly recommend connecting with a Kindergarten teacher near you and asking pros and cons to their career. You could also ask to shadow the classroom or volunteer to help. I think it is great way to find out if it is something you would want to do long term.
Good luck on your project!
