as a teenager who loves learning, and wants to be a teacher of some sort..I find this kind of sad. While reading this article and articles similar to this, I kind of feel hopeless. I feel as if, in a year and a half from now (when I graduate highschool) I am going to have choose a career path that I don't want to do because of this, I feel as if I am going to have to do something that I financially NEED to do, rather than do something that I feel is my calling. I feel as if we DO need education, and most importantly the RIGHT people to educate us. I am tired of teachers who are doing this because this was their last option, I am tired of teachers who simply just want to mark your work and give it back, rather than teachers who mark your work, see where you went wrong, and TEACH you right from wrong, I AM ALSO tired of boring teachers. I want a teacher who is as enthusiastic to teach the way I am about learning. This is why I want to become a teacher/proffesor. BUT I feel as if I can't do that now because I am going to need to do something that keeps me financially stable. If we all resort do choosing career paths that ONLY keeps us financially stable..I feel as if we are going to develop to be very angry, stressed, depressed people. This sucks.
