English as a Second Language (ESL) Teacher in Sacramento:
"Rewarding, but it requires hardwork."
Pros: I get to interact with students who are from other countries and don't speak English as their primary language. Every day is a new day, filled with new experiences. The cultural diversity in my classroom is the best part about this job. Not only do I teach the students English, but every day they teach me something new about their culture and their language.
Cons: I rarely have any, at most 30 minutes per day, to plan lessons and curriculum. I have to do most of this off work hours. I'm only one teacher, with 50 - 60 students per day. Their English language skills range from low-basic to high-intermediate. The most difficult task at hand is not teaching them the language, but teaching classes with students who all vary in their levels of English proficiency. I can lesson plan for an entire month, but during that month I may have to enroll students who have absolutely no English skills whatsoever, regardless, I'm expected to teach... This can be very frustrating at times...
