Although I’ve been in several classes with inspiring teachers, watching videos and reading articles or posts about becoming a teacher that will help in the education revolution, I’m still very frightened to proceed down the path I have chosen. I think being afraid is normal, many students in college change their majors several times before they find something that they want to do for the rest of their life. I know I want to be a teacher, but I just don’t know if I’m ready.
I guess the only thing that will make me get over my fear is to face it and try my best. I know that I want to change a student’s life, and I know that in order to do that I need to be inspiring like all my previous and present teachers. I just am afraid to go out into the world, fresh from college with all these new ideas, and bring them into a school that’s focused on tradition.
We once watched a video with Will Richardson as the speaker, that told us that we need confusion to transform education. I guess it’s a good thing that I am confused and afraid, I just don’t like the way it feels. I guess I just want to be in control, and that’s the feeling I need to let go.
