Two days ago I went to school after extra long winter holidays and stuck in administrative tasks !!!! Choosing a career is a tough decision, especially if it is teaching... Is teaching right for you? I think that the main goal of the teacher is TEACHING, SHARING THE KNOWLEDGE AND BRINGING UP THE YOUTH... Teacher should have much time to develop his prof. skills, be motivated to do his job in a best way,too. Which are ad- and disadvantages of a teaching career? As for me Advantages * Receive private scholarships and federal funding for teaching programs ( IF they are).... * No teaching on the weekends, holidays and in summer months ... * chance to be envolved in courses and projects.... * KNOWING that you are making a difference.... Disadvantages * Teaching in large classrooms * Low salary relative to the work * Small school budgets * job - related stress What will you add to this list?? Please, share your opinion about it!
