I explored the teaching as a 2nd career, I rejected it for several reasons. First, I was a "teacher" in the Army, as a trainer of my troops at the unit level, as a Drill Sergeant, and as a platform instructor at the Army Armor School. I am familiar with how to convey information to students so that it can be understood and retained. Second , the schools I reviewed were focused on "passing" students, not teaching to standard. Also, I saw little value in wanting that a teacher have an MA in Ed., when many teachers have zero real life experiences to go with the degree. Here's a "multiple guess" exam for you. From whom do you seek to learn Science? A) A newly graduated Education Student? B) A Lab Tech with 20 years experience?
