I will begin nursing school
in January and I left the education world to go back to school. As a former middle school teacher for one year, I have had the opportunity to get my feet wet in the teaching world. I have grown to discover that I miss the school environment and I think I might want to teach again...either do that or maybe become a school nurse.
Is there anyone here who teaches or taught at the secondary school level? I would love to hear from anyone who has taught high school--maybe a Health Occupations class or something along those lines. How much experience do you guys suggest I get as a RN before I try to go into teaching? Do you find that the kids are more serious about learning? This was a problem as a middle school teacher--many kids don't like going to school and really don't take the content seriously. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
