Being A Teacher

When becoming a teacher there is more to it then just teaching the academics to the children, you also have to be commited.

- When your with your students 7 1/2-8 hours during the day you may not have time to work on lesson plans and grade assignments. You will have to devote your free or extra time to create lesson plans and grade work.

- Eventually, you might start to build a relationship between you and the student to where they feel as if you were their best friend.

- Even though there are guidelines on what you must teach, you get to create the lessons and decide HOW you want to teach it. No matter if it's as fun as a game or just taking notes, it's your classroom so you get to choose what goes on.
