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

December 2014
"Private versus Public School Teaching."
High School Teacher:
Private schools offer competitive salaries with a more pleasant and less stressful working environment than public schools.

"It is so difficult because now & then the department accuses you of things you've never done."
High School Teacher:
Pros: I like being around school children & imparting something in them so that they may have a bright future.
Cons: The enviroment it is not that much satisfying for an individual to teach in.

"Teaching life."
High School Teacher:
Pros: It is very rewarding when someone understand something you've just explained to them and they are able to use the information productively. I also really enjoy working with the youth, not just in a classroom teaching Accounting or Maths, but also sharing about the truths of life and seeing how the learners grow into responsible young people with dreams and a passion for living and making a difference.
Cons: To much politics. The main purpose of school (education young people into being successful and independent one day) is so often interrupted by unnecessary problems, some personal and some not so much.

High School Teacher:
Make sure you have a passion for helping children learn. You must also have a tolerance for working with people who have different views than your own. Everyone you work with will not be as a passionate about their job as you are. This is where the frustration and stress begins. Sometimes, you may feel that your colleagues are undermining you. You have to have a positive way to vent. Please do not take the complaints home with you.
