Teaching is something I have always wanted to do. I love being around children and the idea of helping them develop and learn is rewarding.
However after doing a bit of research I notice that some people only go into this career because it's "easy" or "has good holidays" not because they actually want to teach.
As someone who is passionate about going into teaching I find this ridiculously unfair and also slightly worrying. What if I don't get into the uni or job I want simply because they happen to choose someone who is barely interested in the actual teaching? It's also making people like me look bad, teaching should be about inspiring and changing children, not for the "good holidays" or because it's "easy".
Probably not making much sense but I just want to know what you think of this

I'm not sure what you're looking for here, surely what you are saying just means you have a better chance of success as you bring another level of dedication and passion?

those people won't stick with teaching long anyway, it's not easy, especially in the training and NQT period

I promise your passion will show.
Also, the fact that you care about this suggests that you'll probably end up doing related work experience, and teaching degrees really like it when you have lots of work experience - generally, you need to have at least a week, and that's often long enough to weed out the people who think teaching is easy.
