“A parent visits her children’s favorite teacher and is surprised to discover that the teacher does not  encourage her to enter the teaching profession.”    Megan Brownlee:​   - The favorite teacher of Terri’s kids, who came into teaching as a second career.     Terri Ernst:​  - Parent, pta mom, very involved in the classroom. A Hydrologist, with a background in  science. She asks for Megan’s insight on “what teaching is really like”.      Megan emphasises the bad parts of the system, explaining that the system is anti-kid.  Things like the kids schedule are scheduled for bureaucratic convenience, which makes it  hard for the teachers to plan anything. She says the schedule wasn’t the real problem.  The real problem was “pullouts”; kids leaving for different reasons throughout the day.  17/21 students leave throughout a normal school day.  ➢ ESL, instrumental lessons, gifted kids, calligraphy, etc.  This makes it hard to introduce topics those students should be a part of. The schedule  changes daily, Megan almost never has all her students together. She barely has a two hour  block with all the kids, let alone a one hour block. Teachers have tried to change the schedule  in the past but have always been met with resistance. Megan feels no one really cares about  what the impact on the kids will be.   There’s also a challenging mix of kids.  ➢ Serious family problems, no impulse control, a mix of reading levels (first grade  through high school level reading), and the math differences are even greater.  She doesn’t want to replace her students she has, she just wants people to help her or a  better way to reach them. She wants them to be able to focus better, pay better attention,  and she wants to be able to create a better lesson plan, but she can’t seem to find someone  willing to help her do so.  Megan believes that there are so many differences in teaching styles, and with the  amount of teachers, subjects, and extracurriculars there are, the teachers have to steal time  from one another to get any kind of assistance.  Megan states that all of the scheduling stuff is an inconvenience and that the real  problem is the standardized tests. The new math tests have problems with “unsolvable  answers that don’t match the teaching curriculum  Megan tells Terrri all of this so she can make an informed decision. Just like our  textbook tells us, you have to find out for yourself if teaching is the right fit for you.
