    I am a 2nd year masters student, and I was told last semester that I would be receiving a graduate assistantship which would entail teaching undergraduate classes in my department. I did not hear from my department until the Friday before school starting when I found out what classes I would be teaching. After teaching my first day, one of the office employees informed me that I was not actually a graduate assistant but a student assistant and i would only be receiving $8/hr (the undergraduate assistant pay) as opposed to having most of my tuition paid for through an actual assistantship. No one ever from the school ever formally offered me a position, and no one told me that i was not actually a GA. I ended up quitting the position because I was essentially getting paid less than $4 per class to be responsible for an entire section of a class. I kind of regret my decision because I wanted the experience of teaching a collegiate class, but am I being unappreciative for quitting? considering they weren’t being completely truthful, Am I wrong for being mad?

    Last semester, I finished my practicum as a part of my college courses toward becoming a teacher. My experience wasn't great and really hurt my confidence about my ability to teach. I enjoyed working with students one-on-one to help them with their work, and interacting with them in general, but instructing the entire class made me anxious and miserable. After a less than stellar lesson lead by me in which I think I left the kids more confused than they were to begin with, my mentor teacher (the woman who's classroom I worked in for the program) gave me an understandably poor review and commented that perhaps teaching wasn't the right career path for me. Because I got straight As on the on-campus portion of the program, I passed through and am now in my senior year on the same path for a degree in secondary education. I feel like maybe choosing another career path is probably best, but it's too late to change my major without extending my education beyond four years and going even further in debt. I'm thinking of just going through with the degree I'm 3/4 of the way to earning now and perhaps doing something else with it, like working with secondary-aged kids in a role other than classroom teacher. Is it too late to change my major without essentially doubling my college stay? And if so, what else can I use my current degree in secondary education for?

  • I get offended too easily?

    I have a problem where I get offended easily especially from teachers. Like if the teacher says I’m doing something wrong or tells me off I get very upset and almost feel like crying, but I don’t show it. I don’t know why I’m so sensitive like this, sometimes it can ruin my whole day. How can I just move on?

  • Why do they do this at school?

    Best answer: You don't know what you might use. Many students DO find that they use many things they were taught in high school. What's more, everything you study trains and disciplines your mind in ways you are going to need, whether you realize it now or not. I am a historian, but I am very grateful that I studied... show more
    Best answer: You don't know what you might use. Many students DO find that they use many things they were taught in high school.

    What's more, everything you study trains and disciplines your mind in ways you are going to need, whether you realize it now or not. I am a historian, but I am very grateful that I studied math and science. They deepened my critical and analytical thinking skills. I know scientists who are grateful that they studied art history and English, which taught them serious visual observation skills and writing skills that they needed.

    You are too young to know now what you will need. Be grateful for everything you are being offered now, because you will be doubly grateful in the future.

    I promise.

  • My teacher gave us a weird assignment but idk if he’s allowed to do that?

    Best answer: In most states that would not be allowed. There must be an alternative assignment available. The extra credit thing is (usually) allowed but I feel that is extremely unethical. I suggest having your parents first contact the teacher and get in writing what the requirement/consequences actually are. Then they can... show more

    The extra credit thing is (usually) allowed but I feel that is extremely unethical.

    I suggest having your parents first contact the teacher and get in writing what the requirement/consequences actually are. Then they can proceed from there. Sometimes the teacher says this stuff but doesn't really intend to give students zeros or such, which is still really poor behavior from a teacher.

    Best answer: Just remember these are kids and you are not. You don't need to remember everything specific, but if you have a lesson plan (which you should) this will guide you. If you are trying to remember a lot of details, write them down and if you have to write them down then the students should write them down or at least have a handout.


    At the end of the day you are not going to ruin these kids or yourself unless you do r say something stupid (i.e. offensive, racist, inappropriate, etc)
