The Kentucky Division of Education has released names of the 5 candidates currently on the short list to be the state’s next education commissioner. Following soul looking and trying quite hard, I have also decided that i can not continue my education career. I have looked into other ed jobs but seems as though I am not in the ‘clique’ for a state educ dept job. They will also accept you or reject you, primarily based on the available jobs and the schools that do the hiring. Really, I have to admit I did not listen to a veteran teacher who told me to run the other way.
My third college confirmed for me that teaching was not for me. I do not want to blast the teaching profession or education itself, but the present day working situations for so numerous teachers are subsequent to not possible. My college gives a system where I can earn my master’s of education soon after I graduate with my bachelor’s of history. They have to pay you far more with a Masters and private schools don’t necessarily call for an education degree.
Then once more, you may well discover some pedagogy in grad school, but a lot of Masters programs in education are total bullshit. I just want to operate in a college exactly where education is the quantity 1 priority and my students parents are on my side, but then again, I have usually been an idealist. Genna, you will not regret it. I’ve yet to read a single post on any forum/weblog in which a fed up teacher left and regretted it. Missing the little ones do not count btw. A teacher I know who has a Masters degree tends to make $35,000 a year and has to buy her personal teaching supplies. These three months have killed education for me. Every single day is torture and I fantasize about quitting daily and nightly.
Something or an individual on the other side of the phone is a lot more critical than education. It is this aggravation and depression you can’t get over since you really feel you are in a hostile atmosphere like I’m an enemy or sth just since I am a teacher. Additionally the US is the laughing stock of countries that give a proper education for their children.
A single of my ideal perform experiences was when I was working as an overqualified, underpaid secretary at a university due to the fact everybody in my department was pleased, sort and respectful. There was a single observation a year, no walk throughs, little ones have been kicked out if a behavior problem, and the teacher had lots of freedom in how she chose to teach. I decide that my failure to post district mandated standards and objectives resulted in students unable to realize what the learning objectives is for that day. The new evaluation method guarantees that the teacher have to be in the principal’s inner circle.
