You're most definitely teacher material! Aside from being bright and creative, you have the patience necessary for teaching elementary school. You're not afraid to embrace your imagination or be innovative when necessary. You think on your feet, know how to stay calm, and always have the best interests of your students in mind. If only everyone could have had a teacher like you!
Don't Quit Your Day Job
Well, don't quit your day job for a career in teaching just yet! While you might be intelligent and creative, you lack the patience that every teacher requires. Dealing with demanding parents, off the wall behaviors, and those who simply don't get what you're saying would be a struggle for someone like you. While we don't doubt your warmth or your bright mind, we don't know if an elementary school is the right environment for you.

With a true sense of purpose and who you are, dealing with the demands of teaching and parents wouldn't stress you out, it would bring you true fulfillment. Maybe it's time to quit your day job and start anew?
