High School Teacher Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a High School Teacher?

High School Teacher in Toronto:
"The Challenge of Inspiring Tomorrow - Today!"
Pros: The most gratifying events of teaching is watching students take the skills I have helped them develop and then use them on media, ideas, questions, events in their lives - and then combine them, or "work out" their own perspectives about their lives and evolve new perceptions of the world they live in. They do this on their own; it is a natural process to try to understand and make sense of their world. It is as true for youth as it is for adults - perhaps even more necessary for students. Seeing them reconstruct their world, based upon what they have learned in my class is one of the most rewarding.
Cons: Professional interference, exceptionally important social exchanges, multiple, simultaneous, conflicting and time dependent social and topical problem solving, management - necessary skills. Ability to research, absorb, combine, organize, design, deliver and implement information, methodology and action plans to a high level of effectiveness and to be able to measure, assess and evaluate the process and its effectiveness as well as the performance of groups of youth in enacting the process delivered. And, to be able to discern, accommodate and assess individual youths' exceptional needs and to adjust the process design and evaluation of their special abilities. Finally, an exceptionally effective communication skill set is required to discuss the youths' performance and to collaboratively plan, with other professionals and laypeople concerned, strategies for youths' future success immediately and for the long term.

High School Teacher in Sudbury:
"Long wait, lots of BS."
Pros: IF, and I mean IF you get a permanency or contract, you get benefits. If you work day to day, you get nothing. You get to build relationships with students and staff that are rewarding.
Cons: The never ending correction, report cards, the political bs and the long wait to finally obtain a real contract or permanent position. The kids (and parents) can have strong attitudes and you may or may not have support from principals.
