    I took classes to become a personal trainer - aced every test - then decided not to pursue that career just as it came down to the final test. The knowledge I gained has stuck with me, though so it was worth it.

    I took flight lessons all the way up to Certified Flight Instructor - aced almost every test - then decided not to pursue that career just as it came time to take the final Check Ride.

    However, I was the primary trainer at my current job up until last year when I got burned out with training random people all the time.

    This means the first two "drop-outs" turned out to be a good thing for me. They taught me a lot about teaching, and increased my respect for teachers exponentially. Teachers rock, because they put up with lots of bullshit and still smile. icon_biggrin.gif

    There used to be a few regular posters--coach Mike and his biceps come to mind.
    I just started at a new vocational college. I may substitute this year for the local school system.

    Absolutely yesicon_exclaim.gif That there is probably the most important and valuable teaching job because the ability to read proficiently is extremely crucial in modern life.

    Yes. I've taught at the university level for 15 years. I really admire people who can teach kids in grade school and high school. I couldn't do that for 10 minutes.

    I am a teacher, i am currently teaching elementary and junior high kids. It's hell of a job. Until I get my masters an phd I have to do this as for experience. But it's underpaid.

    especially with the pre school population, it is difficult to maintain your health.

    I teach high school science, biology, physics, and chemistry. I have taught at just about all levels from summer camp science programs to elementary students to students in graduate school and medical school.

    I taught 7th and 8th Grades for 16 years, with the odd 10th Grade class. Mostly English, but also some German. I coached x-c skiing at the same time, then moved to full-time coaching with various national teams. When I retired from that, I coached skiing locally. I am fully retired now, and I miss teaching and coaching!

    My respects to you. That's a demanding specialty.

    I was both an Asst. Professor in college, and later a senior high school teacher, grades 11-12. I wanted the new challenges.

    I loved teaching. It's really a lot of what I did during my Army career, but called "training".

    For all the teachers on this site, especially the ones who teach below the university level, I commend you. Teachers are treated as glorified babysitters in America when in fact they deserve more respect as they carry the responsibility of teaching the next generation of workers.

    Thank you ArtoDeco. Thank you for serving in the Army.

    I was originally a social studies teacher, never thought I would like the challenge of being a special education teacher with all the challenges of case management and then co-teaching.

    I taught in a school which specialized in kids with learning disabilities. Hard at times, but deeply rewarding work. I'm still in touch with several, all these years later; I hope you'll have the same satisfaction that gives me, though sometimes you won't know for years how much good you've done.!

    This is my fourth year, first group of seniors. I know that much of the fruit of my labor will not be seen for years... and years.. if ever. Sometimes it is easier said than remembered when working every day.

    Thank YOU in return for that compliment. I would not have gotten that response from many others during the Vietnam War era.

    At the same time, I try to politely dismiss such praise, on the grounds that I was having too much fun, the entire time I wore a uniform! I loved it! Once I became an Officer I could have resigned at any time, but I was having too great a time.

    Why should I be praised for having a wonderful time, at taxpayers' expense? Let the flag-waving patriots make those chest-thumping claims for themselves, I won't for me.

    Do you think I would have done it for 25 years if I wasn't having the time of my life, enjoying every minute? I do the things that I like, not what I hate. It was only health and some other issues that ended my career earlier than I would have liked.

    But again, your kind words are appreciated, I don't want to sound ungrateful myself, nor on behalf of other veterans here. It's just that praise for my military service, which I often reference & cite for its formative influence on me, embarrasses me.
