I have been asked to begin teaching an Introduction to Teaching course at the university. Like many other states, we are in desperate need of teachers. There is already a shortage and from all predictions it is set to become larger over the next few years. I've been given the challenge of finding and encouraging students to become teachers. A tall order since the pay is low and behavior problems seem to be on the increase. However, teaching can be rewarding for those who are truly committed. I can't imagine my life without the wonderful experiences I have had as a teacher. I have loved all ages, but my favorite will always be kindergarten. I want to teach kindergarten one more time before I die.
