Why Young Students Need a Teacher Like You

Posted On Oct 15, 2021

Why should you become a teacher? As they say, it's not just a job, it's an adventure! Teaching young children is never dull - they are always moving, growing, and changing, and no day is ever quite like the one before. It is a unique and exciting time in a child's development, and preschool-aged children are always eager to learn. While working as an early childhood educator is challenging, it is one of the most rewarding careers you can have.

Are you the perfect candidate for a career as an early childhood teacher? Take this quick quiz and find out!

1. Do You Jump Headfirst Into Every Day, Ready To Learn Or Try Something New?

Kids love learning from someone as curious about the world as they are. If you are a passionate, eager learner yourself, teaching may be an excellent career for you.

2. Are You The "Cool" Adult That All The Kids Flock To At Every Event You Attend? 

Young children love to be around people who "get" them. They can tell if an adult enjoys their company and they tend to gravitate towards those kind of people. 

3. Are You Calm And Capable Of Creating Order When Things Get Chaotic And Unpredictable?

It's great to be spontaneous and passionate, but things can get crazy in a hurry when young children are involved. They crave the presence and leadership of an adult who can instill order and return a sense of calm so they can feel safe and cared for. If you have this particular skill, you are a prime candidate for an early childhood education (ECE) career.

4. When A Child Cries Or Throws A Tantrum, What Do You Do? 

If you see that a child acting out needs compassion and an extra helping of TLC, and you are ready, willing, and able to give it, you should definitely consider becoming a teacher. Children need more people like you in their lives.
