So it's time for me to have a second stab at the college thing.Having dropped out of economics and russian due to sporting ambition,I'm going back in September.Until recently I had pigeon holed myself into studying either law or politics and international relations.Law being because it's a solid profession,even though I couldn't see myself enjoying it,and the other one because I have interest in the two subjects.
But recently I've been thinking about doing secondary school teaching.I always shudder when I think of myself in,say,10 years,working a monotonous office job,9 to 5 every day,only being able to enjoy life at the weekend,being a slave to routine.Teaching appeals to me because:
I'm a good speaker and I'd like to work with people.
You work with different groups of people day to day and year to year.
I don't have to work long ass days and have plenty of time for other interests.
I get a ridiculous amount of holidays to do what I'd like to do in life,like travel.
I can get away with being bad,I know this from experience.
I can do it anywhere in the world really,which is highly appealing.
The things that would turn me off it are a fear of not being able to handle young people,I know I would have hated to teach me at times.Also the fact that I might absolutely hate it in the end.
So are there any teachers on here who can give me advice?How long did it take you to find your feet?Do you enjoy it?Any opinions at all would be appreciated.
