want to become a high school teacher
post #1

i am in my fourth year of college in virginia and want to become a school teacher, preferably high school and then maybe move into administration. in my high school, we had a few short teachers and most of them weren't respected except for one of them. the man was in his mid fourties and 5'5 give or take  but his presence was huge. does anyone in education have any advice? what should i look for and how should i approach students. i start my externship in september and don't want to ask this kind of question because I don't want to come off as insecure and unready.

My High School history teacher was 5'4 at best. He had to be one of the best teachers I ever had and didn't take anybody's crap!

Many of my HS Teachers were below average height. They were great instructors and had the respect of most of the student body.

My High School drama teacher could not have been anymore than 5'3 and everyone loved him. He was kind but knew how to control his classroom so everyone respected him.

The short teachers I had were usually the toughest ones...
