I am going on a one month intensive 200 hour teacher training next month. After speaking to some of my teachers they told me that usually people don’t get jobs as a teacher until after doing a 500, lots of workshops, and teaching for free.
My question is, in your opinion do you think I would be able to teach for free? There are two local studios, one which I have been going to for about a year, so I would ask the owners there. I really wish to get the experience, but I’m only 17! I feel like it might come off as arrogant and maybe I will not be ready, after all I am still a kid…should I just wait till I do my 500 and practice more until asking to teach for free or should I try as soon as I get back
If you could, would you be able to share how you became a teacher and got a job?
Any insight would be appreciated!
