Teaching is fulfilling, it's just not sustainable for me. It probably makes a difference that I teach in a very rough neighborhood.
There's a lot to say about our education system as a whole, but the short version of the story is that no one knows what's wrong with it, so no one knows how to fix it. If only it were as simple as just teaching and learning. lol.
I've spent four years teaching at a community college, dealing with kids of have failed at virtually everything, are afraid of school, and just want a second chance, so I know how you feel. For me, teaching has been an interesting game to play for a while but I don't feel like I'm making a big enough difference so its time to move on.
