About This Quiz

Although it is not often said, being an elementary school teacher is one of the toughest jobs in the world! Can you imagine how many noses need to be wiped and how many hands need to be washed in a school full of young children? To say the least, it's not a job for those with a weak stomach! 

In addition to the personal care required by young children, their level of learning takes a special kind of person to pull off. Whether you've been considering a career as a teacher or you've simply been wondering if you could do it, this quiz will let you know if you have what it takes to teach the world's toughest crowd. As we said, it's not a job for everyone. 

As we quiz our way to your career advice, we are going to ask you about your personality, how you feel about children, and about the way you live your life. While some of you may be better cut out for teaching older groups, a few of you will find yourself at home with the elementary school age bracket. 

Will you go to the head of the class, or will you be sent back to career school?
