I taught in a small, mainly German farming community for a brief period of time when I finished my undergrad degree. My students were well-behaved and the parents cooperative for the large part.

The hours I spent in the classroom were enjoyable. I didn't mind the extra hours at home doing prep work and grading papers. It was the administrational aspects of the job that I hadn't been prepared for. The apathy and actual interference in the teaching process were a deal-breaker for me.
