Working Conditions

1: Being a Teacher Can Be Stressful

Teaching is very stressful! I would need to have good work habits, a healthy attitude, and the lots of motivation to succeed. Not only that i would have to worry about the parents too.

2: Physical Strain on Your Body

Teachers naturally spend a lot of time standing, and this can be hard on my body over time. This may sound like a minor problem, but it can wear on my body over time.

3: Intense Work Cycles

As a teacher, there are certain times of the year when my job is much more intense, like during the first few weeks of school, when I am working to set up my classroom. Also the weeks just before report cards come out are also very intense.

4: Having an Endless "To Do" List

Another working condition for teachers that may be under-recognized is the fact that my "To Do" list is rarely complete. There is always something for me to do.

5: The "Work Hours" are Misleading

Finally, the idea that teachers work minimal hours is misleading. Most teachers work a lot longer the actual school day, and spend a lot of their evenings, weekends, and even summers planning lessons, grading papers, and talking to parents.
