Are there any male elementary school teachers on here?

Curious, why do you make your gender such an issue?
Men and women can equally be great teachers. To think otherwise is sexist.

So glad you've joined us! We really value our male teachers, and have them in every grade except one this year. (Teacher switch grades based on numbers, so every grade has had male teachers.) My P actually prefers to hire males, so, although they need to prove themselves, being male gets their application a closer look.

I have a suggestion. We have groups on PT for various interests, like Parents of College Kids and Teachers Over 50, Runners, etc. If you'd like to start a group for the men teachers, I bet you'd be a good support for each other. Just a thought!

Again, welcome to PT, the best place to hang out on the Internet!

It's not an issue. I'm just curious as to how many are on here. There are very few men in the elementary grade levels where i'm from. I'm just trying to make connections. It's not an issue and never will be one.

It's not so much a gender issue

A lot of teacher materials are very feminine-leaning. I love color but I don't want everything to paisley and flowers. I also don't want everything black and white.

Since I started in teacher college almost every professor I have had has told me that I need to be less. I am 6'8" tall and a little heavier, so i come off as being mean or angry, when I am just being me.

That being said, I am not afraid of being seen as one of the girls in the school, its more about building relationships with everyone, but also having those time where you need a male voice to help you process.

It'a all about balance.
