With all the demands on educators now, what motivates young people to go into education? When I started years ago there were no state tests, no standards based education and teachers could be creative. The public (parents) tended to support and respect teachers. It seems that now days that is no longer the case. Why do you want to become a teacher or why do you want to stay in teaching?

Every once in a while that one student gets it-one can tell by the look in their eyes. That is what makes it all worth it.

I agree with Durff! When a student really gets it, you feel this exciting sense of accomplishment and that's what makes it all worthwhile:)
