"Teacher In Middle America."
Education is a good field but be prepared to face many tough challenges especially at the secondary level. If it is not student malaise, it is lack of parent involvement, administration who fail to back you and a department of education that seems to be making it up as you go along. All the while you are left in the trenches to teach the students. Keep your head up. It is rewarding if you can reach just one student.
