The down side to this job for me is the money. I think dealing with what you have to deal with to become a Kindergarten teacher and to actually do the job, you should get paid more. But I do not plan on doing this my whole life so it's not that big of a problem.

So in the end though there are some salary issues, I would love to be a kindergarten teacher. Working with kids who have no idea what they're doing somehow sounds fun to me. Helping them learn the basics sounds fun and somewhat easy. In fact, I think getting certified is going to be the hard part.
