North American research suggests that teachers are not adequately prepared during their preservice teacher training to work with parents, as course content and actual parent contact during practicums is limited (Hedges & Gibbs, 2005; Hoover-Dempsey, Walker, Jones, & Reed, 2002).

  • By any chance do you know what are the requirements for a foreign teacher? How or where can someone go to fill out an application?

  • The one mother saying she’d stay there reminded me of pre-school. We used to take it in turns to stay and help out. The one mother used to make a fuss about leaving, making her daughter cry which made the mother worse. We ganged up on the mum and basically kicked her out each time, and each time her daughter would shut up as soon as she went. The mother was just as crazy in her daughter’s teens and isn’t much better without her. The joys of village life…

  • This was super informative!:) I am at a cross roads if I want to finish my early education degree or try something different. If I do continue to go the education route I will definitely pick an older audience

  • I am so in love with this video
    I Have always wanted to be a teacher and I love sport so I thought I would combine the 2 subjects and do p.e and business teacher but over my years of teaching I have realised I prefer the younger age groups.The biggest problem is the Irish side of things in this country.The promotion through degree not merit is so relevant.
    Also my heart nearly melted when you talked about the toilet breaks I am also a type 1 diabetic and your giving me the believe that it is possible I can achieve my dreams


  • My moms a teacher for special kids and she would tell me everything and that makes me want to be a teacher to help the children learn things so it can help them in life

  • Hi, Amanda. I have been teaching for almost 13 years. You are so right about what you all said. I am doing my second master:D. I am planning to do my PHD. WISH ALL TEACHERS THE BEST.

  • Hello there:) I’m 17 and want to be a teacher. What kinds of work experience/jobs would you recommend doing in order to gain different experiences to becoming a teacher?
    I’m asking this based on what you have said cause it seems to be you have to be able to do bits of so many jobs in one and quite literally be like a parent to a bunch of toddlers who are teenagers ��
    What kinds of qualities should teachers have and how can you build upon them?
    What do you like about being a teacher and why did you become a teacher?

  • Teaching is hard! I’ve taught high school chemistry and middle school earth science in underserved communities and it was extremely overwhelming mentally! The grading, lesson plans, administration assigning pointless things to do, the disrespect from the students, unreasonable parents, etc. It was a nightmare. Even though it was discouraging, a part of me still wants to teach. My biggest problem was the verbal and physical abuse from the students. This time around I hope to try elementary school. Any who, great video:)!

  • I really appreciate what you are saying about the outlook on #2. I am starting a new teaching job and I want to go in thinking only positive thoughts.

  • Looks like you spent 18 minutes telling people not to be teachers with out actually saying it….lol. Great video though. We don’t do it for the money. We do it because we love seeing students experiencing success. We are built TEACHER TOUGH.

  • Honestly, this video makes me excited to be finished with college and looking for a position, and at the same time it scares me a bit. I deal horribly with political pressures in any job. Right is right and I refuse to back down from what is right. I will absolutely not lie and have left jobs before when they told me to lie if I wanted to keep my job. Dishonesty just is not in me. I also have disabilities, both mentally and physically, so the whole first year thing, for me, will likely be more difficult than for those new teachers half may age without disabilities. My current plan is one to two years as a teachers aide, then seek certification and my own classroom if I believe I can handle it and not short-change the students’ education. Thanks for this video. I will be saving it to my favorites and sharing it via my Facebook. More people outside of the field need to see this video. Parents, students, future teachers; and many that are supposedly in this field at some level, teachers who have started giving up, but won’t leave and let the kids have a teacher who wants to be there, admin., district level folks who make decisions that doesn’t effect them, state and federal government decision makers, etc…. I hope this video makes it in front of those decision makers and they read the comments as well. Someone, somewhere, needs to get through to these bureaucrats that make decisions regarding our and our students’ lives at the school. They need to read the comments from other teachers, from the students, and the comments from those who watched and left comments on reasons they left the profession.

  • Hi, I am from India.
    I am doing ITD (International Teaching Diploma) course. I have done my graduation in B.A. English Honours.
    Could you please tell me that which courses should I need to pursue for applying in a teaching job in USA and UK apart from TEFL or TESOL?
    And is Indian bachelor degree recognised in USA and UK?
    If not then what should I do to get a teaching job out there?
    It would be great help if you clear my doubts as I really want to move abroad.

  • When you are a teacher, there is hardly any down time. Show time and deal lines are constant. Then you get bounced around to various grade levels-28 years now. You have to love seeing kids learn and guide them to become compassionate world beings. Otherwise, people burn out after a few years.

  • Great video, you make a lot of good points! Fellow teacher here! Has your school made a decision about the fall yet? It’s so tough isn’t it?

  • For pdf files when you find a worksheet you like you can always convert the pdf file to word so that you can change it up a bit to fit your lesson

  • Hey hey your content is awesome. Glad I found it. I’m a new teacher myself who recently made a video on how AMAZING my first year went. Would love for you to check it out if you get the chance. Maybe we can collaborate on a video! Hit me up ��

  • 59 year old airline captain, history degree, US Air Force Academy, thinking about becoming a history teacher…. your video was great! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks! “Manage Your Disappointment”….. wisest thing I think I’ve ever heard…. thank you for this video!

  • Howdy,

    I’m thinking about leaving the military and pursuing a career in education and through my research I’ve come across your profile and I have a few questions in regards to this video specifically:

    Is lesson planning over the summer or weekends a thing?

    Do districts usually pay for continuing education or professional development?

    Do you get a stipend for equipment like your personal computer or HDD?

  • Thank you so much for this video. I was thinking of going back to school to become a teacher. I never knew any of this, so it’s very helpful. ☺️

  • I am a primary teacher in England and the 20-21 academic year will be my last. I love working with children but the £ isn’t worth it and the job just isn’t for me for the long term.

  • I am so glad that I find your channel right now. I will be going into the teacher education program in the fall. I hope I do well with all tips.

  • From the age of 18 months to 3 years old I was in a hip spike cast. Basically a cast that goes from the hips part way down one leg and all the way down the other.
    As a result I was unable to potty train at the appropriate time. I had to be potty trained by people who knew how to do it properly, because it is not easy to potty train an older child.
    Fortunately I don’t remember potty training, but I do have memories of wearing and messing in my diaper. I remember dreading that feeling of having to go and holding it as long as I could, then the feeling and smell. I’m still rather strongly copraphobic. A phobia is not always about fear. It can also be a strong feeling of revulsion.
    I still dread that feeling. I no longer have accidents, but I am so repulsed by anything to do with poop that I prefer to keep my system rather constipated. Not terribly comfortable, but hard little nuggets are preferable to anything squishy.

  • Hi, my name is Faith. I’m a Tween that wants to become a teacher, but I don’t know if I should. How do I know if I should become a teacher?

  • Damn a lot of teachers in the comments sound like they let the kids get the best of them. I’m currently in college to be a PE and health teacher. I prefer to be in the gym room but sometimes I know I’m going to have to be in the health room teaching the kids. I tell you what, I am not going to be playing with those kids and I’m not letting them run me or my class nor get the best of me!

  • Thank you so Much! I just started teaching English in taiwan and at first I did really good but then I taught another class and I felt so disappointed in myself and I prepared soooo much but it still went bad. I was more nervous and my mood was just bad and I felt so slow and they were watching me and I wanted to do well. Anyway this really helps me. I hope I can be a good teacher. I have so much to learn so it’s a bit overwhelming but I appreciate your video!

  • Restroom before picking up my class in the morning, during my prep, during lunch and thankfully my students get two 15-minute recesses, so I take advantage of that.

  • I’m not trying to be negative but just a thought.
    Surely if you do enough work sheets, lesson plans that eventually after years of becoming a teacher you will already have lessons in mind to just redo that again for other students

  • Excellent Video clip! Sorry for butting in, I would love your opinion. Have you thought about Schallingora Font Storage Scheme (just google it)? It is an awesome one off product for finding teaching jobs online minus the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my work buddy after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical success with it.

  • Thank you so much for for this video!! I really enjoyed it! I have been a public school teacher for eleven years, and I just finished my first feature film about my first three years, how I almost quit, and why I stayed. I made the film because I felt that the way teachers were portrayed on screen was a poor caricature of the challenges and rewards that we actually face. Here’s the YouTube Official Trailer in case you’re interested: https://youtu.be/aVzWwsB6q9s My film is available on Amazon Prime (in the US & UK): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0874KD6QF and on Vimeo (Worldwide): https://vimeo.com/ondemand/aboutateacher. Thank you again for your amazing video!

  • Its amazing to me that this video has so few views/comments, and only underscores that no one really gives a shit about the education of their children.
