Teachers

I wanted to be a teacher but, due to some things I was not able to. The teachers I have come across today are not what I had when I was in school. My teachers at least most of them really cared for the students themselves not the paycheck. I am finding fewer and fewer teachers that love to teach for the pure enjoyment of it. What ever happened to when you teach you touch the future. I feel maybe the "old" pros are worn out and just do not have what it takes any more. That in my book is setting a child up for failure. It will mean more work for the child and more frustrations too especially if the child is struggling already. The no child left behind act is a good one but it needs to be enforced develope more programs for the individual needs of the kids in school today instead of throwing them in as a whole. Not every kid is the same but the system that is place seems to think it is and I for one am sick of seeing smart kids left behind. Where will our future be if our kids do not succeed?

I think you should go back to school and be a teacher. I've met many teachers over the years, some just doing their job and others who were passionate about their work and their students. It was the passionate ones who made the biggest impression on my kids and who are obviously making a difference. You'd make a great teacher. You're already giving from this passion and talent to your kids; share it with the rest of the world too! It's never too late. You can accomplish anything you set your mind to.
