From the day they enter into their first teaching job, teachers are forced to learn how to handle parents. If they can win over the parent who thinks their kid is the greatest thing since sliced bread, then your new partner will have your mom and dad like putty in his hand before the first round of cocktails are even finished.
Teachers are obviously great with kids, too. One of the basic human needs is a need for belonging, and teaching can provide that.

A fantastic list: Makes me wan't to be a teacher, I think teachers have one of the most important job in the world. This was such a good hub I currently have my teaching license, but I had my first child a month after I graduated.
I had to put off my entry into the teaching world. It's articles like this that keep me inspired and looking forward to my career. I am so excited to get started, and I am most definitely looking forward to those "light bulb" moments! Great Job! Carcro, thank you so much for your kind words!

A good teacher is worth there weight in gold! I can't tell you how hard is it to teach my kids anything, so hats off to the teaching profession Great article!
What about men who want their work hours to match their children's school hours? Mai, thank you so much for your comment. I agree with you on all of your points.
Teaching takes a lot of time in my country and area, too. And it is all for the kids - I agree. I guess teaching differs from country to country, state to state. From where I'm from, a teacher's working hours is not short.
Holidays wise And shorter hours Not happening here.
I will reach my school at am and will only leave after 5pm on a good day. On a bad day, I will leave at pm. It is longer than those who have a job. And with education systems everywhere continuously changing, the only satisfaction you truly get is the impact you have on the kids. At the end of the day, the things that you do is for the kids. Sathya, you are so right! Teachers are the same whatever country they are in.
Dude, I appreciate you taking the time to comment! Most teachers are definitely not in it for the money. Many teachers could make a lot more in the corporate world. Most are in it to help the kids. And about doing it for free. Most people do need to earn a living, so that's not really realistic. Take care! Sorry, but isn't every teacher in it for the money?
Find me a teacher that would do the job for free. Julie, I appreciate your comment and you using this article a source. I'm not sure what you're asking for, but I wish you all the best on your project! Duchess, yes, I taught for nine years. I am now a ESL Tutor and know that teaching is far from perfect. In our jurisdiction, some teachers do indeed take classes during the school year but not every teacher does. They also often do a lot of prep during the summer months.
Our schedule, officially, was fromstill shorter than an office workday. And I usually worked about hours a week. Yes, I am very aware of the facts but this was an article I wrote to just remind myself of the good.
Things You'll Know If You're A Teacher
Thank you so much for your comment. And no, not everyone has respect for teachers. Respect is sorely lacking, in general, for much of society. But I do think that decent people do respect teachers. I am sorry. It sounds like you had a bad experience.
Mine wasn't the best, either, but I wrote this to remind myself of what the good parts were. Thank you so much, and I did not mean to be misleading in any way - there are other articles about the problems - this was one was meant for inspiration.
By the way, I taught for nine years: three years in First Nations communities where the dropout rate was astronomical and every class had a high percentage of special needs. And also for two years at a at-risk high school where I had students with extreme behavioural problems and extreme politics that contradicted itself at every turn. Yes, I am a teacher. Were you or are you a teacher? You have some erroneous facts. Most teachers spend six weeks of the summer in classes to keep their certification up to date.
I usually arrived at am to get my day ready prior to mandatory staff meetings. I rarely got out of the building before pm. Teachers are not treated as professionals and are daily bashed in the media. I know all this because I taught I also taught developmental reading and writing at the community college level for 8 of those years.
Yes, I had respect from the parents and students I worked with. From administration and the public at large, I was seen as a baby-sitter. Vellur, you are so right. Teachers help people get an education, so they can pursue their dreams and ambitions.
Best things about dating a teacher
We have all teachers that we owe so much to. Thank you so much for your kind comment.
Loved your reasons and enjoyed reading. The light bulb moment makes being a teacher wothwhile. Without teachers where would we be, without the required qualifications, who will get a job. Teaching is a nobel profession. Voted up. Louramano, thank you for stopping by. Yes, teaching is also a very responsible job and requires a great deal of commitment. Freemarketing, I completely agree. This was a top ten list, with holidays and hours being 10, in other words, the least important.
The three most important were relationships, the sense of purpose and the lightbulb moments. That was the point: that people think of holidays being the best things about teaching, but there are far more important things. As for myself, I spent hours and hours, into the midnight hour, teaching, and usually spent one month of my summer preparing for the next year.
I actually wrote this hub to remind myself about the great things about teaching, when I was feeling very burnt out. Teaching is a very hard profession, and this was intended to remind teachers of some of the good things, amidst all of the challenges.
I wrote it in general to encourage teachers. The things you write don't apply to all teachers. I think the best thing about teaching is the relationships and seeing the alums from your class many years down the line actually making something of their lives.
If you're in it for the hours or the vacations, then my opinion is that you're really in it for the wrong reasons. Jaydeck, there seems to have been some political will in the States lately to really focus on teachers being to blame for students not learning. I am not aware of New Jersey specifically and I am sorry to hear that. I think if anyone walked a day in the life of a teacher, they would find it hard to judge.
It is not an easy job and deserves a lot of respect. Thank you so much for your comment and all the best to you.
Our governor has seen fit to engage himself in a public relations campaign to demonize teachers and it is having a toll. Many in our state believe that teachers have too good a deal. I am constantly reminding others of the extra hours we put in both in and out of school. Furthermore, our similarly educated counterparts in the private sector tend to make much more money than we do.
People in New Jersey have forgotten why teachers have traditionally had such good benefits; the benefits were meant to attract well educated, dedicated individuals to a demanding field that pays less than they could get elsewhere.
Thank you for this hub and forum. Yes, the two months off are a definite perk to teaching, for sure. But I think the main thing I liked was that you really are learning all the time. It just never stops. In that way, it's a lot like writing, too, where you never stop learning. One of my friends who is a teacher once said that the best thing about being a teacher was that 'you never stop learning', just like you've mentioned under LifeLong Learning in your hub.
Adrienne, teaching really is a higher calling, a purpose. I agree. Take care and thanks for the oommnent! Hi Prairieprincess, Your article on the ten best things of being a teacher was a great list.
I think the number one thing is A sense of purpose, which you had listed as number 2. Great list! Kris, that's wonderful! Teaching really is a higher calling, isn't it? Thanks so much for stopping by. Ancestralstory, thank you so much. It is true that teachers do let go of the reasons why they first started teaching. I am not in the classroom right now, because of budget cutbacks but I still love teaching very much. It's fantastic to see some positivity about being a teacher - I hope it stays with you for your whole career, as some let themselves forget their dream.
Sunshine, wow, thanks for letting me know. That's so neat that you have that many teachers in the family! Although, I'm still curious about this hour-long lunch break people who don't work in education get. What do you do for a whole hour? Then after 3, you get to plan for the next day! That typically takes several hours. Writing an assessment report about how a child is doing in school could take up to five hours or more, depending on how much detail you want to add.
You have to prepare for every possible thing that might happen the next day. In addition to the planning, you also have to grade papers, answer emails from parents, meet with other teachers, and make sure the next day you are ready to go again. Added bonus: any work you do before 8am, after 3pm, during the weekends, holidays, or over the summer?
Yeah, you don't get paid for any of that. All those supplies teachers have? More often than not, we've paid for them.
And believe me: they ain't cheap. Meredith Lee is a marionfoaleyarn.com contributor who is single and is forced to date a lot when she really wants to stay home.

Teaching: exactly like babysitting, except not like that at all.
