@Subway11 - I think that becoming a teacher is really about working in a classroom. You get the instant gratification from a child that finally understands something that you are teaching and somehow I don’t think that you would get the same results online.
It is a little bit harder because you can’t read the child facial expressions and the online set up seems a little cold to me. I know that a lot of people take college classes online, but that is different because adults are more independent and it fits their lifestyle better.
I don’t think that kids are that independent that they can take a series of classes online without the regular give and take in the classroom. I think that teachers that are drawn to this profession are probably not going to want to be tied to a computer at home. I think most would want to get to know their students face to face.
