I know I'm not phrasing my questions correctly but I'm not sure how else to ask. I'm curious what others think of older teachers because I am currently going back to school for my bachelor's and teacher certification after being out of school for many years. However, I won't even be finished with my degree program until I am 43, and then of course it will be several more years for a masters. Being a teacher has been a life long dream of mine since I was a child, but I'm wondering now if I should continue with pursuing this degree or if I should change my plans.Answer Question

As a parent I am always happy when my children get an older teacher! They have so much more life experience and being a mother as well is such a bonus for a teacher. My first daughters kindergarten teacher was like 22 and fresh out of college and really had no idea how to relate or teach properly and I was very disappointed. I say go for it!
