    I want to be a teacher. My best subjects are probably any of maths, history and physics but i've decided against teaching at a secondary school because with exceptions the kids are too cruel. Instead i want to be a primary school teacher, i went to my old primay school for a week on work experience in October and if you want to go into teaching i'd recommend that - the kids are way nicer!

    Hell no. Loads of primary school teachers are male. Why would you think that? :rolleyes:

    It's not actually a bad job being a teacher. The money is OK (£25-30k pa, rising if you're a head/deputy) and the holidays are good.

    Go to work in a private school, you can get anything up to twelve weeks off in the Summer and plus you get a higher salary. Bratty kids though

    I've been to both private and state schools and it's really no different except private school kids get involved in drugs more often, which isn't what you'd expect but that's what happens - they're also more snobby, so private school kids really aren't better...from my experience!

    it does depend you know- you generally find the people with real wealth aren't snobby. The drugs bit is true though because of the money to buy them. Personally I wouldn't like to go to a state school.

    Sorry about this but I have to know....how far away is Marlborough boarding school from Bath?
    Why is it that you find the short men always teach little kids, thats from just what I have seen. Maybe they are scared about being intimidated by secondry school children.

    i am doing gcses this year - actually they start 2moro :eek: but anyway i either wanna be a teacher with children who have multiple and profound disabilities or i wanna b a speech and language therapist with them. i think with teaching u get more time actually getting to know the children instead of just analysing their speech. i did my work experience at a special school n worked mainly with the teachers but also a bit with the speech n language therapist. anyone doing anyjob similar to these? if they are please pm me with advice/experiences. thnx very much
