Thread Name: How many mudcatters are teachers?
Subject: RE: How many mudcatters are teachers?
I've taught First Day [Sunday] school and music lessons. I think I'm probably too much of a disciplinarian for kindergarteners but they don't seem to be afraid of me yet so I guess I haven't scarred them too badly. I do better teaching Appalachian dulcimer to adults, who don't need to be told not eat chalk.
My BA is in history so it looks like I should have gone into teaching but I'm an absolutely lousy "people" person. I'm currently in library school but planning to study archiving instead of going into school or reference librarianship (too much like teaching!).
I respect those of you who can do it, but I can't. I'd frankly rather chew off my own leg. The district where I live is very restrictive about what is taught and how it is taught, and anything I like well enough to want to teach would be spoiled by the beaurecracy. Awful.
