Today, I ran into my favorite teacher from high school, the one that really inspired me to become one myself. I told her that I'm in my last year of college preparing to become a teacher, to which she replied, "Wow, they really are letting anyone have a crack at being a teacher these days." FML

Commenting on a comment about hijacking someone else's comment thread. Yep. We see it enough. They know what they're doing, no need to call attention to it. Lol.

If a lot are going to university to become a teacher, then there may not be enough available jobs to match the number of graduates. This is quite common in some areas.

Canadian teachers actually get paid so much better than their American counterparts. That might contribute to it being difficult to become a teacher in Ontario.

Yeah, when I was getting my degree we had someone come in every semester to discuss the UTeach program, which basically allowed you to get teaching credentials as you pursued your major.

Keep your head up, OP. It takes a kind heart to want to become a teacher. Even if your old teacher may be bitter, you're doing the right thing. Good job.

totally agree. the teacher should have given friendly advice instead of being rude. everyone is entitled to have an opinion but its how you go about expressing it that makes it "right" or "wrong" and this teacher was in the wrong. it's a shame, and I'm sorry this happened to you, OP.
