Teachers in today’s society earn only $1430/month. How can we put a price onour children’s education, especially that small of a price? Children in today’ssociety deserve the best possible education and how are they able to get thatwhen the teachers are not getting a fair salary?Every since the first day I walked into elementary school I realized Iwanted to be a teacher. I am not really sure what it was but something just setoff a spark which has continued to get brighter and brighter over the past 13years.
During these 13 years I have been able to practice my teaching skills byworking hands on with children, whether it be baby-sitting, tutoring, or justplaying I was always working one on one with children. Only this year I was fortunate enough to be able to be involved in theAlexander High School Interning for Life Planning Program which allowed me towork with children hands on for a semester. This helped me see what being ateacher was all about. Everyday I had papers to grade, a lesson to teach, andchildren to work with.Order now
Without the opportunity to participate in the internshipprogram I would only have a few ideas behind what it was like to be a teacher. I was also part of the Alexander FFA PALS program. This program allowed meto work with a 3rd grade class once a month and teach them new andinteresting facts about holidays, famous people, and amazing places. Since Ialready know what it’s like being a teacher when I enter college it won’t take mevery long to get through it. I am hoping to attend Ohio University and get mybachelor’s degree in education. An average teacher’s salary is about $1880 per month.
When I become ateacher I plan on moving far away from here so, hopefully, my salary will be alittle larger than that. If something happens and my career goal falls through Iplan on becoming a flight attendant. I have always loved to fly and becoming aflight attendant would be a very good career goal for me as well. The onlyschooling a flight attendant needs is to go to go to a flight attend school whichlasts approximately 5 weeks. After the five weeks is up and the attendant ishired they are kept on probation for almost 1 year.
“If you want to move people it has to be toward a vision that’s positive forthem, that taps important values, that gets them something they desire, and ithas to be presented in a compelling way that they feel inspired to follow,” MartinLuther King stated in his “I Have a Dream” speech. By being a teacher I hope totry to move the students toward a vision that’s positive (college) instead of notgiving them a push and telling them which way they should go.
