  1. Hello all. I am looking to go into teaching, and i have a quick question to run by you. what has the area or community have to do with how you teach or the issues you may encounter. I always thought that in any school you will have mixed abilities. ive been told that in poorer areas you have generally less motivated or able students than in rich ones ( dont ask me why, as i thought being impoverished made you strive harder), but what else is there?
    Thanks

    In wealthier areas, there are more job opportunities if you get qualifications and more positive role models.
