Teaching Bio

Postby guy17 » Sat Jun 10, 2006 2:20 am

i was always confused of what i wanna do in life, when i was young i wasnt that good in school, still i was amazed by a career of a teacher, but never told to somone cuz i was ashamed because i knew i wasnt capable... but with time i did well in school. last year i took Biology GCSE... i was doing extremley well, but i skipped a bit of lessons and failed to gain the exam, also because i sucked in experiments.

my dream of becoming a teacher had grew with me, and it seems that can't fade away lol... and biology was the most subject i loved, i constantly read the biology book i used, and i just love it. i love the varios topics there are... the human biology, the environment we live in, nutrtion... everything... except the soil topics... i finded them boring!

so what i'm trying to ask... is it a hard road? is Biology hard to understand? i think i'm capable to gain the GCSE exam of it, i find it easy to understand it... but i'm afraid it will be very very hard in Advance level and even more at university...

This road is hard but easy roads won't give you satisfaction afterward.

You know, in Ukraine (where I live) average earnings of biology school teacher is about 80-100 dollars a month. People who love it are willing to work though.

Biology is not uniform. There are always something that is hard to understand but there are nothing impossible.

Yup...I long as you love biology, there's nothing in Bio is impossible for you to learn...
The satisfaction in learning biology is not the goal, but your struggle to achieve the goal..well, that's according to me.. :D

Feel free to ask anything about biology here and discuss it with us, we'll gladly help you to understand it.. :mrgreen:

we are in the same situation. actually, im not very interested in biology before. afer my high school, i accepted to furter my study in matriculation and slowly my interest to biology begin to build up. it because i forced myself in the beginning in the matriculation to study hard for enter to university. then, i think i found my field and now im in university taking my degree in appied biology. i hope u will try your best to get your aim . remember this "not easy to catch the thing. it not come to you, but you must go for it"

Biology is a science. As it is a science, it isn't a simple and uniform field as careers related to languages, etc.

If you want to be a scientist or a sciences teacher (in this case, a Biology teacher), you have to take in account that you'll have to work hard to reach a poor result (but a satisfactory result) and you'll have to be continuously 'studying' (time runs and when time is passing new discoveries appear, so you have to be updated, he he).

If you love Biology, you'll catch it with a lot of courage and you'll put a lot of effort. These two things are the only things that you have to apply if you want to reach your goal: courage and effort. So if you want, YOU CAN.

If being a biology teacher is your dream, then go for it. Even if the road might be hard. In fact, having to go through a hard journey to achieve your goals only makes your victory sweeter in the end. So don't worry about any potential obstacles and just go for it!

Good Luck!

Teaching in itself is a calling. Having an interest in biology is really the most important factor in becoming a biology teacher. Passion for teaching will come later. When I graduated high school, I thought I knew a lot about biology stuff. When I took my college biology subjects, boy was I so wrong. An interesting thing that you'll notice in biology is that, the more stuff you know, the more you realize the less you know. So you dig in deeper and deeper with questions buzzing in your mind stimulated by your readings. Being a good biology teacher will inspire your students to ask and learn more about biology. And that's just it, the rewards of teaching is in the knowledge of the students; no matter how crappy a teacher's salary is, fulfillment comes when you see the light shining in the eyes of your students.
