I do agree with your viewpoint. I am so much happier teaching in the classroom and interacting with students.I do harbour career aspirations and I do compare to how my PGDE peers did in their teaching careers as compare to mine. I wonít go into details but I am doing relatively ok but I am at a point of my life whereby I hope to take things a bit slower and focus more on my own kids. But itís so hard to do that in Singapore considering the mortgage pressure and standard of living that I am used to. Anyone form of advice or words of wisdom are truly appreciated.
