I know there are a handful of us on here, figured one of these should be in this new sub-fora just incase any members here aspire to teach, or get involved in non-higher education. I know it may not be many, considering this is a fora that focuses on things that are way outside the budget of most school teachers, but I know I've received several pms about the job.

Anyway, I'm 10 years in teaching 8th grade History (US 1865-today) in a pretty nice school in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

As well as giving advise to would be teachers I think current teachers can post questions/comments/concerns they are having as well.

Good idea for a thread NYR. It will be interesting to see some of the conversations here even though I am not a teacher.

My first year on the job - provisional teaching license after doing the alternative certification programme in Texas. I do economics, US government and history at a public high school with an 'international' focus. I also run the first aid, Amnesty International and UN clubs as well as assist with sports.

So far, I really enjoy it!

This does not surprise me, and I'm glad you're enjoying it.

Teaching, as a profession, is wholly dependent upon 3 factors:

1) What age children you're teaching

2) What subject you're teaching

3) Where you're teaching

I've found that enjoyment of the profession can be determined, with a near 100% accuracy, by the answers to the above 3 questions in relation to how the people saw themselves doing the job or wanted to do the job.

Today in my classroom:

Some action shots. Had the kids bring in food from their own cultural background this entire week seeing we're studying immigration now. Listened to Brad Paisley's American Saturday Night and talked about how diversity is such a great thing and that our differences should be celebrated, not knocked. I always gain a few pounds the week I do this...lol. While we eat we're analyzing some documents (a passport application...shhhh) from 1919, to see if we can figure out what it is.

I wish my professors wore three piece suits; I think I'd take them more seriously.
