Anonymous said: Hey I love your blog and congrats on the promotion! I was wondering if you could tell me what it is like working in a preschool. I'm am currently a Libs major but I a wanting to change my major to Child Development so I can work in preschool, but my dad thinks it's a bad idea. He says they don't get benefits and that you make less than if you were an elementary school teacher, but I don't care if I make less. So I was just wondering if you could give me some practical info? thanks I love you!
First of all, thank you! Secondly, your dad is right. You do make less than an elementary school teacher, you don’t belong to a union, you work long, weird shifts, and in some cases your health care is extremely limited or even non-existent. But it’s not impossible! I’m lucky in that I work for a preschool that is part of a K-8 school, so I am able to have the same contract as the primary teachers and I get full benefits.
That being said, teaching preschool is an incredibly rewarding and humbling job because you are the first school teacher your students will ever have, and your classroom is the first one they will ever step into. From the first day, you have the chance to set kids on an educational path that they will enjoy, and you can make kids love school because they don’t have any preconceived ideas about what school is like.
Like all teaching jobs, teaching preschool is also very scary at first. Preschoolers are active, loud, weepy, excited, impressionable, and easily hurt. Your lesson plans are not always going to work. Someone is always going to tell you that you’re boring, you are going to be stressed, and you’re going to get your heart broken by a student who tells you they hate you. Don’t get discouraged. Stick to your routine, do your trial by fire, and do not ever let them see you give up.
Because halfway through November, when you’re ready to burn your worksheets and drown yourself in glitter glue, you’re going to hear one of your students practicing their ABCs under their breath. You’re going to see another sharing for the first time all year, and you’re hear new voices answering your questions at circle time. And it’s the BEST feeling.
And I am very sure that you could have that experience in any subject you teach, and I firmly believe that good teachers are needed for every grade. I love love love teachers.
But not all teachers love love love working with preschoolers. So if you think you could and you have the patience and the willpower, then godspeed and I hope you pursue it. If it’s what you love to do, you’ll know.
