Consider becoming a teacher of Big Chem and Mighty Physics
No Fooling, It's Wonderful!
Just look at these guys, they are about to be attacked by a neat demo!
And... Another Day, Another Lab...
Think of the fun of looking cross-eyedly at a student who is trying to pronounce, "Paranitrobenzeneazoresorcinol", or the "Hexathiocyanatoferrate III ion".
Or calmly asking, with much seriosity, "Please tell me about Pitchers and Poachers and what they have to do with Qualitative Analysis".
Or hoisting a student to the ceiling on The Great Hook of Physics.
Or connecting students to Sparky!
Attacking the Magdeburg Hemispheres.
Or whipping out a Black Banana and Dense White Fumes.
What are the benefits of teaching these classes?
You get the Greatest Kids in the school!
You have the fun of doing Awesome Demos.
There is a great demand for Teachers of Chemistry and Physics, so it should be easy to get a job.
You may place loafers in the Penalty Box.
You may express your opinions at staff meetings. If the staff doesn't agree with your opinion, you may try to sneak out Under the Curtain.
It sure beats this Career Path.
There are many Vacations!
Job security guaranteed by the Population Explosion (no downsizing).
Alums and parents Thank You for the college preparation.
What are the requirements to become a Chemistry & Physics teacher?
A big bunch of Enthusiasm!
A love for teenagers and their Weird Ways.
A certain amount of Insanity.
A love to put on a show, Do Demos.
A lack of care if others think you are Different.
It won't bother you if everything doesn't work out Like You Planned It.
The ability to Laugh-Off many situations.
The acknowledgement that most everything else takes Precedence Over Classes.
Five very fast years of College!
"In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and
the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because
passing civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be
the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone could have."
