How do you guys feel about teachers that aren't passionate?

My chem teacher doesn't have a passion for chemistry, she doesn't connect with kids at all, and she speaks in the same monotone voice everyday. She doesn't sound enthusiastic like my other teachers, but she fulfills her "teaching" part, since she is good at simplifying stuff.

I just don't understand why she became a teacher if she doesn't have a passion for teaching or her subject? I think she wanted to be a doctor but couldn't, so she went to Teacher's College.

I hate it when teachers dont have a passion for their subject! It makes me not pay attention in class and I lose respect for that person.

For some people a job is just a job. Not everyone is able or willing to go above and beyond and be amazing, that's just the way it is. Unfortunate, especially since teachers are so important, but they're human too

It sucks. Quite often a prof makes or breaks the course for students. Teaching is one of those careers that people should not pursue if they aren't truly passionate about it.

People always tell me I should be a teacher. My response: "But I don't WANT to." Them: "So? It's a good job/you'd be good at it."

I don't think they get it...

It's a good job



Being a glorified babysitter is a good job?

Not my opinion, obviously. I was quoting.

I think teaching is a thankless job, but it shouldn't have to be. Not sure why they aren't respected as much as doctors, engineers, etc.
