From nurse to teacher?Watch
I enjoy nursing but I thrive more when I have more control of my day (and is it extremely shallow to say that I want to wear my own clothes and look decent for work? I feel more motivated when I am) and I enjoy the environment of a school, always have.
I don’t have any experience in a primary school so I’m hoping someone can help. I hear that teachers are basically doing 12 hour shifts by the time they get into and leave school and a lot of forums I’ve seen are saying teachers are just overworked as nurses. I’m not looking to escape workload or anything, but I would like a career that’s not overly stressful. I’ve also heard it gets better the more years you teach?
I know it’s slim chances to find someone who has experience of both careers but I’m just looking for someone to shed some light on a realistic (and not exaggerated) workload etc. of a teacher.
I’d like to make sure I’m making the right decision and maybe my daydreaming of teaching isn’t what I think it is?
