In order to get into the College of Education, I had to pass an interview. The three experienced teachers tasked with letting me into the college asked me the following perplexing question:
"If you had a teacher friend tell you she didn't want to continue teaching because it is too difficult nowadays, what would you tell them?"
|I wonder how Subgirl would have
answered the question?
Their blank stares and puzzled expressions told me this was not the answer they were looking for. I failed to "amaze the whole room."
I still think I gave a fine answer. I would love to know the answer they were actually looking for.
I made it into the College of Education and have had many wonderful years of teaching, but it's just something that pops up once in a while and makes me wonder.
