Kaylee’s Answer

Former teacher here! My favorite part was always the hilarious things that the kids would say! I taught 5th grade and sometimes the things that came out of their mouths were just too funny. Teaching is a hard and stressful job but the things the kids say (sometimes on purpose, sometimes not) made it easier most days and reminded me what was so fun about the job - it was just such a great glimpse of their growing personalities.

I kept a jar on my desk and anytime one of them said or did something funny (or something endearing) that I wanted to remember, I wrote it on a little paper, folded it up and put it in the jar. During the last week of school, I opened it up and read back through them all, remembering all those little moments that made me love those kiddos so much. I absolutely recommend doing this, it was so lovely reading back through them and warmed my heart so much!

Dawnyale’s Answer

Hello Halle,

I was a teacher early on in my career and I think it's wonderful you are considering the profession.

My favorite aspect of the role was the fact that the children were so full of joy and creativity. They had so many great ideas, unique personalities and each added something valuable to the class. When they struggled to learn a concept, I enjoyed reminding them of that and showing them how they could continue to add value in other classes and at home.

I also liked the fact that I was contributing to society. The children of today are the adults of tomorrow. Teaching allows you to be a part of what is great about the world as you pour into those who will one day heal those with illnesses, create art, make legislation, and teach the next generation both necessary and exciting concepts. As a teacher, you inspire others every single day with what you do, say and instruct.

Another great part of the job was that I also got the opportunity to protect children. If a child was hungry, or sleeping in class, or acting out in unpredictable ways, it was my job to find out what was going on with them and help them through it as a trusted adult who cares about them. That part of the job is probably the most valuable as for many children, those conversations they had with their favorite teachers changed the course of their lives forever.

I hope this thoughts help you as you think about your next career. Teaching is a wonderfully rewarding career for anyone who's looking to provide children with a new perspective and an opportunity to creatively grow. Good luck to you!

Sree Padma’s Answer

My favorite part of teaching is watching my students absorb the material and raise critical questions. I also love, admire, and am proud of how some students throw rare insights into their essays.

Samuel’s Answer

As a tennis instructor who primarily coaches kids, my favorite thing about being a teacher/instructor is the fact that I have a chance to be a positive role model for the youth. I see coaching as an opportunity to instill good values in students, build their confidence, and help them develop their social skills.
