Informational Interview

the work place and person i did my interview on were both great Mr. sander seemed to love his job and had a great environment to work in. some things i learned was the difference between teaching little kids physical education and teaching elementary. i like that i didn't just interview i got to be in the class with him well he taught and see kinda what it would be like. what i didn't like  is that i was with an elementary class and i was thinking more of a secondary teaching job. my only concern would be dealing with behavioral issues which doesn't really worry me that much. the advice that i revived is to make sure that you really want to be a gym teacher and be ready to deal with kids and move where ever a job opening is.i did not discover another exciting occupations to pursue. the working environment was great it took place in a gym which is one of my favorite places top be when i cant be outside. i think i would be happy ion this occupation i would get to teach kids about things i love to do.
