A while back, I received the following message from a reader friend on Facebook:
Hi! I’m 20 years old and I currently attend community college. I am torn between teaching early childhood education and secondary. I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now, hoping it would give me some insight to the high school English teacher life and help me to make my decision. I was wondering if you’d be able to tell me (or make a post even!) about how you knew this was for you, or if you juggled between any age groups like I am…
And here’s how I responded:
So, there you go. I’d love to hear from others about how you made this decision – especially those of you that have made a different decision from mine. Do you agree with what I said about the difference between teaching secondary and primary grade levels? How did you choose?!?
