I was going to school to be a registered nurse for a year and then I decided to switch my major to elementary education to be a kindergarten teacher. I decided this because as a nurse I would work CONSTANTLY and I want to be able to be with my daughter and husband. Kindergarten teacher was something I thought about doing before a nurse though. I love kids and it would feel so great to teach them their first things and I would get the nights off and weekends and summer....
Just wondering if I'm making the right decision...I'm about to start school for teaching. Any kindergarten teachers out there...let me know how you like it! :)

My Mom was a kinder teacher for 20 something years. You will need to get an early childhood degree because usually there are only 1 or 2 teachers for that grade so you will probably not start with that until there is an opening. My mom taught 5th grade for several years before the kinder opened up. If you have the patience than you will be great. They are very demanding. You do not teach for the money...you teach for the kids. Don't get me started on how underpaid teachers are. My sister is teaching 3rd grade now. I teach women skin care and color...lol.
