What do you dislike about teaching?

Sample Answer: One thing that discourages me about teaching is the lack of funding in the public school system.  There are so many things that teachers need to purchase that have to come out of their own pocket, and there never seems to be enough money to buy everything.

With that being said, I also understand the fact that money doesn't just grow on trees!  When things get tough, schools need to cut back just like everyone else, and they need to find ways to be more efficient.  I don't know what the solution to the problem is, but it would be great if schools could do something to increase their revenues in order to purchase supplies for their teachers.

Tip: Good answer. Although you should never go into an entire list of things that you don’t like about teaching, it is never good to point out more than a thing or two or you risk looking as if you don’t really like your job at all! Selecting something like lack of funding is a safe choice when it comes to things that you don’t like as it is universally “not liked” by teachers and school districts alike.
