DEAR FRIENDS: Are there any teachers here? To be a teacher is terrible! After half a week ,my throat is bad! And now a week's lesson makes my throat worse and worse! I can hardly speak! And I don't know if I will be a teacher in my future time! I want to escape this life! But I don't know what other works can I do! I have been a teacher for nearly two years , and maybe ,nearly perfectly, I will be a teacher in my futrue life! And is it like this? I am scared!

It will get better, I promise. I just finished up my first year of teaching and I contracted strep from one of my students...then a stomach virus, then 3 or 4 various other cold-like illnesses. You'll get used to talking so much. Keep water with you!

hi there! i'm not a teacher but my girlfriend is! she loved being a teacher she often told me that her students are a gift to her from their parents, and measure her success by their achievements. Being a teacher is such a wonderful experience. I dont think it's terrible at all. There'll be no doctors, lawyers, engineers, accountants etc.. without a teacher. God bless you always :)
