Hi All I'm hoping I can get some realistic advice and not just negative opinions as I've had recently when discussing this subject with family/friends/co-workers etc. I'm a 24 year old university administrator and if I'm honest I'm feeling uninspired and like I don't really have a career to be proud of or one that challenges me. I have the type of job you could do in your sleep, I am very much on autopilot. I'm considering giving this up and going back to University next September to gain my PGCE and teach Primary. It's something that's always been in the back of mind as a career I truly want to pursue. What is putting me off at the moment is the scarily negative opinions from so many including former teachers and opinions I've read online. Is the state of affairs in teaching as bad as they say? Is this is a career to be avoided? I understand that it's a time consuming and stressful position but this something I'm ready to commit to. Basically I'm just looking for some honest advice and guidance here! Thanks!
