Teaching Is Indeed Fun.

For me, teaching is fun and a good way to dispense my knowledge in subject matters that I am well informed in. However, as a high school teacher, I had to combat with the challenge of routine work (which I hate so much!) I ran into the field of print journalism and regretted it bitterly-- I really loathed mixing up with colleagues in the newsroom and was constantly isolated and thus unnecessarily conspicuous. I ran away from that too. Though I still long for a continued career in education, this remains my major fear-- routine work. So, I'm coming up with the idea of multitasking myself with educational counseling, raising a family and being a freelance writer and an IT specialist. I wish myself good luck in this endeavor!

Thank you marmar4249, this sure gets me thinking! However, when that is the only thing I do, teaching, as much as i like it, does evolve into a routine and so, working with other subjects of my interests would be refreshing, especially if it gets to be an alternative means of income...

ultimately u r the judge. Happy life......

Multitasking has inherent pitfall - lack of responsibility & ineffectiveness. In my personal life i observed that my attraction for multitasking scaled up when i felt disconnected to my responsibilities (towards work, people, etc.). I just shared my case, yours may be different. :). No offense.

Every job is routine over a period of time if i don't see persons around me & further, don't feel responsible for them. In my case, my job is generally white colar job with routine complexities / challenges in them. But when i remind myself that every person is complex & my job includes keeping situations cordial & happy for others as well, i see a different perception to look at my job.

Your job of Teacher is - by itself very complex & non-routine considering dealing with children with different backgrounds. Every child is different & so, same approach will not work with all. You have to undersytnd their natures & help them accordingly. Oh! not at all routine especially teaching.

I'm surprised, how can that be routine my freind? Anyways, if you still feel fear for routine multitasking is best option. But you need to sacrify efficiency. :)))
