So i'm thinking about a major career change. I have my Bachelors degree in Marketing and Int'l Business and i'm not happy with it. I've always loved the idea of being a teacher and i think i'd be pretty damn good at it.
Now... i'm also a bit apprehensive about this. I know that there are gay teachers out there, but i was wondering how bad the extra struggles were in the schools.
...here come the questions...
are there any teachers on this site? or do any of you know any or have any insight? I hate the idea of having to be in the closet with the people i work with. though i understand that ANY teacher's relationship with their students should leave out personal aspects, what if a student asks or comes to me for guidance or advice with their own struggle to come out? (i'd hate to set the example that it's better to hide who you are) ... and if there ARE any teachers out there, have you ever had any problems with parents about your sexual preference?
