In cooperation with prefer-lehramt.de, an initiative of the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts, I regularly provide information at my Instagram channel About the teacher education program, its prerequisites, conditions, and components. So far, the blog has been more about teacher training, digital learning and teaching. This article aims to broaden the scope of the topic: It is about why I decided to study teaching and never regretted it. And what you should bring with you when you become a teacher in the 21st century.
A special wealth of experience
Maybe articles usually start by describing how wonderful teaching is and how much you like working with young people. Maybe it would say that you have to be able to deal with people. Or that you should quickly choose a subject that you will then study. This article is a little different. I make the claim: Whether you want to become a teacher cannot be decided within a few weeks. After 12 years of school that is a very short time. Of course, there are a few quick ones who may not have regretted their quick decision either, but I plead to leave. All the way.
