One Day as a Teacher: What to expect and what to do?

Although just about everyone who went through public or private education had a teacher, not many of us can easily remember what it actually was like to have a teacher. And unless you have worked as a teacher in some fashion in the past, it is very difficult to imagine what it actually is like to be a teacher. However, most teachers will tell you that the art of teaching is a rewarding, challenging and unforgettable experience. Here are some of the things that you are likely to learn and experience in a day as an average elementary school teacher.

Classroom management is extremely important

This is probably the single biggest surprise most people experience when they get a chance to teach. While it is important to know your material and to be able to convey it in an effective manner to your students, the truth of the matter is that if you cannot keep your students in line, you will not be able to teach anything at all.

Many new teachers find themselves full of knowledge about the latest instructional techniques and theories, but soon come to realize that none of this means anything without the ability to keep students in their desks. Veteran teachers, on the other hand, may not have the latest theories from educational departments and teaching programs, but they will almost always have their own tried and true methods of keeping students off the walls and ready to learn.

As a result, if you are thinking of starting a career as a teacher, the first thing to focus on should not be whether or not you have a passion for your subject or whether you are the fun man or woman who loves to be around kids and share knowledge. Rather, what you’ll need to focus on will be whether or not you can manage a lot of people much younger than you who don’t know why they should be listening to you instead of having a good time. Once you’ve got that figured out, everything else comes easily in teaching.

The adults in the building are often just as challenging as the students

This is another surprising element of teaching that takes new teachers by surprise. Once you have the basics of classroom management down and your students can more or less sit in one place, you’re likely to find the administrators in the building to be your next challenge.

No one likes taking orders and no one likes to be micromanaged, but most schools have very definite pecking orders and teachers are very close to the bottom. Finding ways to fit in all of the requirements of the principal, the superintendent, and the board of education can be more challenging on some days than finding ways to keep your students from throwing paper airplanes at each other.

Challenges in students can often be traced to challenging parents

Finally, nearly every experienced teacher will tell you that difficult students almost always come from difficult parents. This is particularly evident whenever parent and teacher conferences roll around.

Google: The Most Interesting Company for Students

Finding a job can be a difficult task, especially in today’s economy. However, finding the right job seems almost like an impossibility. Add that preponderance to be a student just entering the workforce and fresh into the career world and it may seem as if getting a job, any job will likely ever happen.

Do not lose hope just yet, though. With up and coming companies like Google, the possibilities are opening up and will be offered to individuals with fresh ideas and cutting-edge abilities. With Google and the job search, knowing what is available and homing in on what the company is looking for in employees just might land you a position with one of the most interesting companies on the market.

Positions

Google basically breaks down its available positions into three teams. We will call them the Builders, the Sellers, and the Doers. Within each of these teams there are a variety of jobs and assignments completed.

The Builders are those individuals involved in engineering, operations and support, product management, and technical client-facing. Engineers create the technology that’s fueling the development now and for the future. Operations and support staff are involved in supportive internet technology development and usage. Product management personal manage the process of creating, integrating, and launching new products. And, those in technical client-facing build the bridge that connects Google and technology itself.

The Sellers includes the innovators behind retail and business management within the company, including positions in sales and account management, product and customer support, partnerships, and sales operations. Each of the individuals in this team is directly responsible for the success of company interaction, product innovation, business expansion, and smooth operation, respectively.

The Doers encompass possibly the most diverse team of Googlers, ranging from business strategists to real estate and workplace servicers. Yet, much like the name suggests, without the Doers in the company, little would actually be accomplished. This team is a fine team of people comprised of positions in administration, finance, marketing and communications, legal and public policy, people operations, and others. Taking on the grit of the Google workforce, this team maintains the atmosphere and environment presented at the company as well as brings new ideas to the table for business practices and discipline.

Whether it’s Google or Apple or free software, we’ve got some fantastic competitors and it keeps us on our toes.

Aside from even these opportunities, though, Google offers specific prospects for student involvement. Google offers internships for current students in the technical field and even gives precedence to recent technical graduates. And, in the sales, general, and administrative departments, the company offers student internships as well as career paths to those working on higher education degrees.

Requirements

As Google is such an innovative company, the application and acceptance process is a rigorous path to reflect the company’s high expectations. With Google, the process is comprised of six steps that offer the company ample opportunity to get to know its candidates.

So, at Google it is about standing out in the crowd, about letting people get to know you as an individual and sharing innovative ideas. Presenting yourself as a “go-getter” is a must, so being proactive about the application and interview process is crucial. Whether just entering the field or just looking for a career move, Google is worth considering. I mean, it is the most interesting company in business today…
