Yes, when i was young i wanted to become a teacher, but when was in high school, my mother said it is not good to me to become a teacher, I'm too small, just 4'8 in height, and she also said that I might just have headache with the students. Therefore, I took up Accountancy instead of education, hoping that i will pass the CPA board exam, unfortunately i didn't make it. Now, i still have the feeling tof taking certificate in teaching, but isn't it too late for me? I'm already 29 years old but i still wanted to study again... What do you think? Will I just stay as what I am now, (as an employee in a company but only under agency), or will I try to reach what I really want?

It is not too late for you. You could retrain and become a teacher. Which age group would you like to teach? If you teach primary school children your height wouldn't be an issue. At secondary school I have heard some students are very badly behaved. I am a primary school teacher. I teach children aged 5 to 7 years old. I worked as a shipping assistant then I got made redundant. I went off on my journey around the world. When I got home I went to university and became a primary school teacher. At the university I went to there were lots of other mature students. Some much older than 29 years old more like 49 years old. Good luck.

Go for it my friend. Age shouldn't be a hindrance to reach your dream. If you really think that it's best for you. Goodluck with your decision.

I understand what you mean. I think it is never too late to reach for what you really want. If you don't start acting for it, you would continue to feel unsatisfied or stuck. If you think you'd be happy being a teacher, you go for it, girl! Reach for your dreams!

IF you really want that, then you can go for it, my mom is a teacher and a guidance counselor, and also, we have short teachers in our school, even shorter than you, nobody gives a crap. And besides, like the popular saying "Its better not to workm than to work on a job you dont love" (not sure on the words though) LOL. So go for it! :D

I don't see any problem when you decided to teach. I think you will become a good teacher since you can apply what you learned when you worked in the industry. Go for your dreams. Its never too late.

If you want something, and it is good in your opinion do. Moreover, you are old enough. Allow yourself to choose what is best for you, and are responsible for what you choose, and enjoy life based on your selection. Prove it with your choice, be happy people around you.
