” Mental Set”

For me mental set is focusing on the problem before me, figuring out what is causing it, then formulating a solution (this is the approach engineers take). I am an good engineer and not a very good teacher. I hope to use my talents in the future to design useful products that improve the quality of   people’s lives. I am not sure why I wanted to become a teacher, I guess I thought I could pass on my enthusiasm for problem solving. Turns out being a teacher is more about classroom management than teaching (go figure). I am not interested in spending the next twenty years “managing” other peoples kids (I have enough trouble managing my own). I have reached the decision that a career in classroom management (I mean education) is not for me! I don’t have the right mental set for it 🙂
