Would you go in to teaching?

Teachers have been amazing throughout this pandemic. When most people were sent to work from home, they had to continue going in to school to teach keyworker students. They also may have had to teacher children that were being home schooled as well as having to make plans for their own children. Not many teachers were given any extra pay or incentives to do this, they just had to accept that it was part fo their job. A job that is already very stressful became even more stressful over night and many schools were simply not set up for this way of working.

Teachers are needed more than ever at the moment and the government are even hinting about asking some retired teachers to come back, so is teaching a good career to get in to? Teaching can be extremely rewarding and there are some really great perks but it is also very often high pressured, long hours and sometimes very challenging. If you like a challenge and do not mind putting in extra hours after the school day then teaching may be the perfect career for you. If you like to have a job that you can completely walk away from when your day finishes then it may not be the right choice.
