I don't see why your height would stop you from becoming what you want to be in life. I don't know your height but I would probably guess that being short may have some impact if teaching HS.

I used to teach. I was really, really popular and liked by my students too. However, you will definitely have to assert yourself. Teens will push you, especially if they think short=pushover. But, height doesn't have to impact your success as a teacher as long as you're actually good at it.

How long did you teach, what did you teach and why did you leave teaching @jrbennett96? What do you do now?

My science teacher in highschool was 5'7 with shoes on. And what was funny was, all the girls LOVED him. He had a swagger about him but he was also nice and approachable. I know when my older sister had him in 11th grade, her and all her friends would drool over him, keep in mind, she was 5'5'. Not exactly short for a woman.

My niece had a history teacher in 9th grade and this was the case with him. All the girls loved him and found him very attractive. He was only 5'7 tops as well. I met him once and he carried himself in a way that you would believe he had no self esteem issues.
