What do you wish you would have done before becoming a teacher?

Hi! I'm Alli, I'm 15 and interested in pursuing early childhood education. I was curious if any teachers have things they wish they would have done before college or finding a job? Teaching children is something I've always been interested in, I'm just not entirely sure on the steps I should take and what exactly to prepare myself for.

When did you realize that the profession you're in/studying for is something you want to do for the rest of your life?

I've had a countless number of dreams as a kid including becoming a chef, a vet, an artist, etc. My hobbies and interests are constantly fluctuating and it can get in the way of my life sometimes. I recently discovered that I enjoy being around kids, and this has made me wonder if choosing a career in education is something that want to do. Specifically elementary education. (I do have experience doing community service in a kindergarten classroom.) What if I end up disliking my job as a teacher and this is just another one of my interests that happens to change? Can I get some advice, preferably from somebody who is a teacher? What was your experience like? :)

I know all students learn differently, especially students with special needs. For future reference I am curious as to how does one make sure that you communicate effectively with each student, so that they all learn and understand. #special-education #being-an-elementary-teacher #elementary-education #education

Are there any classes that a teacher would recommend that a prospective teacher take?

I am asking because as a student we have a list of classes that we should take as education majors to graduate, but I always wonder if there are any classes that a future educator should take that is not in the set list of classes that students take. Classes that would help out even more in the classroom. #special-education #elementary-education #primary-education #being-an-elementary-teacher

How do I handle discipline in the classroom?

I'm going to be a teacher (first grade), and I'm not sure about the best way to handle discipline problems in the classroom. For example, is it better to give them a time out, or take away a privilege? And what do I do if the parents of an unruly child are uncooperative/unhelpful? #teaching #discipline #classroom-management #being-an-elementary-teacher
