I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology with a minor in Psychology from Appalachian State University. I find it funny that it is basically a TEACHING college and I never seriously considered teaching until AFTER I had graduated. I remember some of the wonderful teachers that I had growing up and I would love to make the same difference in the lives of our youth.
I have many questions!! Thank you to all who can help me out on this matter!
First of all, where do I begin? Who should I contact?
I am torn between teaching younger children (Im thinking 3rd-4th grade) or a specific area in a high school setting. Im open to anything but math! My husband in the math minded one in our marriage, being a physics major / math minor. I however have trouble with numbers! Do you fine folks have an opinion on your class levels? Pros and Cons?
Ive heard mixed opinion on whether or not I would be required to take the Praxis. Is it as bad as people keep telling me?
Am I hemmed into teaching Sociology due to my degree?
Im sure I will think of more in the light of day! Thank you all for your assistance!
Hopefully I will be able to remain a member of this community as a fellow teacher!
