#3: It’ll Take Some Years Off Your Life
If you look up the most stressful jobs, teachers always hit the top ten list. For those who think teaching isn’t stressful, they point to those two sweet summer months that account for over 60 days off during the year. What they don’t understand is that many teachers work through that break or use it to get new certifications.
The other ten months of the year, teachers are working dawn to dusk, and their worth is based on student success. Can you imagine a ten-year-old’s test score being the bottom line on whether or not you get a raise? Every job is stressful in its own way – but working with kids will definitely add a few white hairs to your head.
