I've heard many say, "ooohhh I cant stand working with older kids" Or "ooohh I cant stand working with the younger kids" And I find that two very distinctive personality types go along with this.
I've heard Elementary teachers say, "older children dont listen have lost hope are too aggressive and rude, blah blah blah"
Then I've heard Secondary teachers say, "I cant stand all that touchy feely cutesy stuff that Elementary teachers have to do, makes me cringe, I dont want to be bothered with that, older kids dont need all that, you just tell them what to do and move on"
Now of course I am an Elementary teacher who has honestly tried to work with older kids and they have been so ignorant and low minded in their thoughts and behaviors and actions,
