I deal with older students. We dig literary features. I find coping with different requirements from the school administration a lot more difficult to deal with than the various surprises my students seemingly never run out of sharing every day. Classroom management and rapport are my strengths. I always feel at home working with students. I always see them attending my lectures with enthusiasm. I love being with them and I only met one parent who had issues with my style. I still see him wishing too much to become the teacher. Have I been rich, I will gladly push him to take my place. Have I hated my students, I will even ask the principal to take that parent in to replace my role. It is not his lucky day though. He has to find some other teacher to bother. If in the near future I will see myself leaving the world of teaching, I will miss time spent working with students the most. I will miss the number of sleepless nights spent checking their outputs and writing their tests. I will miss organizing different activities to help them understand different lessons. I will miss being only a page ahead in some reading assignments. Huh! I will miss their hugs. I will miss how their young minds share answers to unfamiliar cruelties in this world that are too familiar to adults but are absolutely tremendous for them.

hi ekoytyas, I am a high school teacher. I did not take up an Elementary Course because I am not a creative person and I don't enjoy much the company of children. When I had my first teaching job in a private school, I was assigned to teach elementary students. I only last for two weeks teaching the first grade students. I did not know how to manage them well. I couldn't teach because all I did was to keep them from hurting each other. When I solved the trouble of one group of children, then there will be another group who will be on trouble. Some of the kids keep running on me telling me that their classmates are bullying them. Once one kid went out to go to comfort room the rest will do same also. It made me really, really crazy and I said that if they do not remove the first grade to me, I will really resign from my job. They realized I mean what I say and maybe because they really need teachers, they allow me to teach the higher level and let other teacher handle the first grader.
