I wanted to talk to everyone about teaching, as a profession. I am sure that with the talent that I have seen already up to this point that surly there must be a few teachers in the Lj. I recently have become a teacher in high school, teaching my profession, basically Emergency Medicine.
I have been an EMT for way to long (15 years) but found that working in the field for 5 years or more I am able to teach what I do through the ROP (regional occupational program). I guess there are two part to what I want to cover here first of all is there anybody out there that is teaching there profession ie. Woodworking or other things and how do you like it.
And second for our youth around the world, if you have every thought about teaching I would like to say go for it. I can see that there is a lot of knowledge out there in the Lj to be shared. I think that a few of you could give a few young kids an opportunity to see another world that they did not know before. Or at least give them another chance for a career.
Here in the US we need more vocational training, woodworking, electrical work, mechanics, masonry, and on and on. This is a good avenue to travel and a great opportunity to help others along the way. This is just a thought I had that I wanted to share with everyone, what do you think.
