Ahhhh. Today I finally started down the path to being a teacher. I began shadowing some of my teachers at my old high school.
It was quite an interesting experience to finally observe a teacher's lecture being more concerned with the method of presentation, and not the content of the lesson.
I am a Freshman in college, and an aspiring Technology Education major. After finally being able to partake in some field experience, I look forward with ever growing anticipation to learning more about the teaching profession.
I received my inspiration for being a Tech. Ed. teacher from my Tech. Ed. teacher in high school. He was such a fantastic influence on me. His outgoing and friendly personality, made it easy for me to want to follow in his footsteps. As for the laid-back, and comfortable atmosphere that he created for his classroom, made it even easier for me to want to follow in his steps.
So I have started down my road for education, and I am very excited to see what is around each bend!
