Top 10 Reasons I Should Teach

29 11 2006

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about my career change. Some inspirations for why teaching feels right for me have been entering my brain recently. Some of them have been:

10. I get National Geographic. And actually read it.
9. I think kids are fun.
8. I actually enjoy a lot of structure in my day.
7. I actually think there is a reason for kids to learn pointless songs like “Yankee Doodle Dandee” (for whatever reason, E. and I were recently reminded of this song, looked it up, and proceeded to debate on the point of kids learning such a ridiculous piece of music)
6. I love good benefits. Teaching would only improve upon the vast amounts of holiday, sick and vacation time I’ve always had in non-profit jobs. (notice I haven’t mention any pay increase…)
4. E. tells me I treat all kids with genuine interest and respect.
3. I admit it – I think learning is fun!
2. I get all excited when I think about doing projects like “pen pals.”
1. I secretly want to turn them all into raging radical activists.
