Hello all! First of all I apologize for this for I know this site is mainly for teachers/students becoming teachers etc. I'm not quite there yet, but I have made the decision to finish my education and have decided on Elementary Education. I have so many questions regarding the field that I don't know where to turn. I guess my main question would be, "Is this right for me or am I right for the career?" The more I think about it the more I believe I would like to teach. I even like the idea of the paperwork and planning. Go figure! But then I think of the impact I may have on the children I teach and frankly it scares me to death. Most kids have more contact with the teachers than they do with their families. I guess what I'd like in response is some feedback on likes and dislikes of teaching for you find out more from the people living the career than from any college catalog or career connection. Also maybe advice on other resourses that might be available for people even thinking about teaching.
