If you are or have ever been a teacher, what is your birth order in your family?


Sounds crazy that I'm asking, I know, but I'm wondering if most teachers who feel successful in their jobs are from a family with siblings. I have a feeling that only children, for example, prefer to work one-on-one. It's just a curiosity for me as an only child and as former teacher who feels much more successful working one-on-one, not for the usual reasons, but just because I am not comfortable with controlling behavior.

    Stephanie, I do think only one other sibling helps as well. Sounds like a wonderful family. I hope you have your educational consulting business in your hubs b/c I have free online learning games that I created on my website. Feel free to email me

    Peggaduse, Now see, I could handle homeschooling. It's that whole crowd control thing I don't have "goin' on". I remember student teaching and taking the 25 kids down to the gym when they didn't have specialists. 25 kids in the gym terrified me!

    Andrew, Ah, ha! Interesting. And I think a person with siblings is much more comfortable with "criticism" because brothers and sisters tease and can be negative, and knows how to handle it. Don't know exactly how to put that. Thanks, Andrew!

    Interesting...still no only children as yet, but Dreikers (way back when) theorized that if there is more than 7 years of space in between you and the next, you've been raised as an only child. I happened to marry the oldest of 6 (TWICE!)

    So, my theory is off! Were you at the high school, college, or elementary level" And you're right, you are essentially an only child. However, I'm thinking that if you're sister had children, you're experience with them might have helped (?)
