1.
Watching a student really get a concept and use it.

That's tough to choose one, but I would have to finally decide on the thrill and happiness that comes from seeing a student make a connection, or have an "ah-ha" moment, which, in tern, makes them feel good about themselves.

What did you dislike about your current or old teaching position?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
They did not offer professional development.
2.
I never think of disliking my job because feelings are subjective. I will say that knowing what I wanted and needed in a working environemnt caused me to make choices in changing jobs.
3.
The pressure from standardized testing. Although I believe tests are an important tool for teachers to assess students learning, it isn't the only tool. The pressure of standardized testing in public schools, in my experience, took the emphasis of teaching away from the relationships built in the classroom, deteriorated the quality of instruction and drove teachers to simply teach the test, and that's problematic.
4.
Nothing. Its a new experience teaching adults.
5.
The system words doesn't always match it's action. For example, we must differentiate education but tests are standardized. And not everyone test the same.
6.
My ability to teach in a way that my students would fully understand and not have to move on when the students are not ready because of the districts mandated pace.
