one thing that I love about elementary ed is the
energy level. I am a hands on teacher, and believe in a active style of
teaching just just sitting in desk reading books. the younger of them, 3rd and
below, are the most fun for me so energetic and so eager. I had ADD as a kid so
I know the symptoms of it but I also know too many get into elementary ed
woefully unprepared for the energy level and "medicate" the kids to be prefect
little drones. most are boys who are VERY naturally active and too many treat
them more like defective girls.
I will say I hope very much to teach elementary ed in
the MK. I love working with kids, especially boys, and definitely have
the energy it takes (I am also kind of a big kid). I don’t see myself as a
ruler and as a teacher I could spread the gospel to kids. (since we are kings
and priests I could see myself being a priest to kids)(the only difficult thing
would be stopping for the day and letting them go home) I could also work
in a local temple or church as a youth pastor. I could definitely enjoy that.
Too bad I couldn’t bring them home with me to the NJ they could meet the
saints and we could have fun but hopefully after the MK and the final
rebellion when man is finally cleansed and made perfect again I can bring them
by my place. then I could bring the perfect children of eternity there too. If
only we could be there now.
I too would like to sing and would like to play many
instruments especially bagpipes (I am of Scottish decent).

There are wonderful men who teach elementary
school. One of the best loved teachers at
my grandsons' school is the
kindergarten man. Having a good male role model in school
great! Once upon a time almost all teachers were male, back in colonial
days in America.
It is definitely not a wimp's job.
I was a teacher
in high school and college, and I substituted a bit in an elementary
I would never have been suited for teaching early elementary
classes, as I did not have the
energy to deal with the "monsters", even the
well-behaved monsters, for we all know how
restless and active kids
are! Some schools try to make them calm by giving them
it's so hard a job. One reason so many parents home
school is because it takes a lot of
energy to give individual attention to
kids at elementary level.
I don't know if we'll be doing "jobs" in the
Millennium, but maybe you will be an elementary
teacher then. I can
imagine a variety of jobs for me. If I am a teacher I may be a dance
music teacher, the true loves of my life, more "me" than the English
teacher I was, although
I was grateful for the wonderful job I had at the
community college and the good I could see
occurring in the lives of my
But in the Millennium maybe I will have a perfect singing
voice, which I didn't have in this life,
to sing in choirs. Who could
But don't be depressed, as you say you are, about your unique
identified skill. That is certainly
