Why I never became a real teacher:
#10: I'm a bad speller.
#9: There's all that 'planning'.
#8: Red tape.
#7: I never learned to 'color' inside the lines.
#6: School starts too early.
#5: Not enough bathroom breaks.
#4: Principals/teachers/any other adult in the building with no sense of humor.
#3: I really can't write small enough to put grades in that tiny grid-marked green grade book thing.
#2: I actually LIKE most children.
AND, the #1 reason why I never became a real teacher:
#1: I have no idea how to make up a list of unreasonable rules and stick to them!
Hey all you teachers out there, some things you can't learn from books. Jump out of the box!
