TQC, I know there are a couple of teachers here - I'm considering making teaching (K-12) my career path and am wondering how you decided what age group you wanted to work with? Both elementary and high school are very appealing to me (obviously, for very different reasons) and I feel like it's a pretty difficult decision.
TQC non-teachers, what was your favorite teacher like? What grade did they teach?
Also, anyone with Teach for America experience - I've read a lot of things that suggest the program is pretty problematic. What's your opinion?
