My present Job as a T&I teacher

This is my third Job as a teacher, I started out as an elementary teacher then I moved to the College and now I am in the high school. I love teaching in college, because MOST students at that level are there to learn a trade and that if they failed or waste a semester then it would cost them to retake that subject, unlike MOST of the students in High Schools are just there to get a grade or because their parents will not allow them to stay at home during the day. I have 7 students that are in 4 different colleges in Georgia (including one at GSU) they all came back saying they are sorry for not taking their high school classes more seriously. Although I love teaching at the college level I would not change my job of teaching these high school students. My greatest obsticle in techcing in the High school is co-teaching with someone that does not have the slightest idea of teaching, thinks he knows , and have no hopes of changing, because he is set in his own ways and think he knows all.
Why I left my last job which was with an airline," too much travelling". Sometimes you have to travel away from home for days to do a job and if the job is not finish you could fly back home but you will have to return to complete the job you have started. So I decide to change, and change is not change until you change and that is what I did.
