The link for my article is right here.
So I guess we’re supposed to sound “blog-ish” in this post, or at least attempt to write how a blogger would. I’ll give it a go.
Reading through this article, or more like commentary, I found some interesting ideas/concepts about men in the elementary teaching world.
Daniel Schantz brings up an idea why men do not want to teach elementary school that is not exactly related to money, and it intrigued me. He says:
“I can tell you that in my experience the No. 1 reason men don’t go into elementary school teaching is their fear of being labeled as sexual abusers. Many people persist in viewing men as potential sexual predators, and not without some reason.”
I would like to question my male peers to see if they felt this way or not. It seems so ridiculous, but I can also see it being a legitimate reason in our judgmental society. Seriously..feedback on this would be cool, guys.
For more on the low salary stuff…just read the article. I just wanted to bring up the most riveting point for me. 🙂
