    Sorry I misread what you wrote . I think subbing or being a teachers aide is the way to go . I also think maybe taking a course or two in early childhood development could be a stepping stone . At the very least there are jobs in preschool teaching . Preschool teacher requirements arenít that hefty .

    Keep in mind that teaching requires tons of paperwork and forms.

    No. It's not nowadays. I taught in the 80s and 90s. And it's not because of testing -that is one small part -teaching requires a ton of administrative work including forms, paperwork, grading, documentation etc - some of it can be done during the school day but from what I recall most cannot.

    How about you check into this yourself -google it, and/or find a teacher who would be willing to talk to you about her or his job, his hours of work outside the classroom and on weekends, the administrative aspects. Honestly I'm surprised you're so interested in this career and you would ask this question - what level of due diligence have you done other than "I like working with children?"

    Also, those cute decorations in the classrooms are not supplied and put up by the school administration. Those are usually purchased and put up by the teachers. I presume most schools reimburse for the cost but not for the time. Plus, grading papers, writing lesson plans, parent-teacher meetings, continuing education...it's a big time commitment for not much money. Which is why I think most teachers do it because they love educating children and not for the money!
