buh! Why do I keep thinking that I want to be a teacher? Teachers are retarded and everyone hates them, and yet, I get such joy out of it. I remember teachers like mr. Allendorf, but I also remember teachers like Mr. Quinton (who is a teacher because he was too stupid to make it in a real field.) I dont know. just look at what I wrote:
One of the things I like best about the practium is when I get to go and hang out with the kids during lunch break. Usually I end up talking about college life with the kids, but sometimes other stuff comes up. I'' amazed how well behaved they are to me when they talk to me on the playground. I'm also pleasently surprised when kids that I've never seen before come over and start up a conversation with me. It's flattering to feel that they are interested in what I have to say, and I enjoy being a novelty in their school. I really enjoy answering the kids questions, even when I end up repeating myself with every conversation. I always think back to when I was in Junior High, how nice it would have been for some one to explain things like college life to me. Many of the things I teach I teach because I remember wanting to know. Sometimes the kids care, and other times they don't exactly, but I still know it is worth it. I don't think I could ever get tired of seeing their little eyes light up when they discover that they have figured out what it is that they are doing.

I cant believe wrote that! but it's the truth. man. I have to get sucked into some better paying position.
I dont want to be a teacher because I cant do anything else, I would hate myself. I just think about all the bad things about teachers, and there is alot of them, plus, I hate all the school administration. Like the bueracroacy and stuff. I need to teach at one of thoes japanese style cram school things. The teachers in thoes are supposed to be all laid back, and not retarded like public school teachers in japan. or I could teach in a private school, like in castilla. I just dont want to be some dim-wit teacher my whole life. cause there alot of Dim-wit teachers. of couse, there are strupid people everywhere. I dont know. I guess this is why I'm in college...

Me too
I'd almost want to be a teacher, cept the pay sucks and like you said, everyone hates you. I think it comes from all of the crap teachers that you've had and said to yourself, I could do better with my eyes clothes and my arms, legs, and tongue chopped off. It's that internal need and small voice in the back of our heads that kind of want to be teachers to prove that you could do better. Good thing we have something called a brain to squash that feeble voice into a thin paste. Deep thoughts from Alex, Who'd of thought?

Re: Me too
If you become a teacher you coould be one of those cool rare teachers that dance around and do cool stuff. Also, assigning homework is stupid. Because not only are you giving your students more work, but your giving even more to yourself because of all the grading that you'd have to do. If you teach high school you can get like 3 teachers aides and make them grade all the tests, hence relieving yourself of any work. Hahahaha, I amaze myself all the time with my smartness.

i sometimes get a kick out of teaching people who don't know as much. but usually i don't... i usually get pissed off and annoyed by people who don't learn fast/well enough...
