Men Teaching: In the Face of Adversity

by Lucas Eide - University of Wisconsin - Stout
After finishing up my student teaching placement and having time to reflect on all the challenges, accomplishments, peaks and valleys, I realized never to judge something before you get the chance to experience it. When I found out that I would be doing one of my student teaching placements in a four-year-old kindergarten classroom, I immediately had mixed emotions.

Men who care: attracting men into the caring professions

At the same time as efforts rightly focus on getting more women in leadership positions and into male-dominated industries, there is also a movement to encourage more men into the careers dominated by women.

In particular, the caring professions are bereft of men. Early years teaching and nursery workers are almost exclusively female, as is nursing and the social care workforce.

This is despite the fact that vulnerable people sometimes request the same gender care for them because of the intimate nature of the relationship.
