Teaching or Mechanical Engineering?

  1. Dec 13, 2005 #1
    What do you guys about these two professions?

    I am leaning toward teaching Math, however, I am unsure if I will enjoy teaching students who do not wish to learn.

    I found physics to be interesting, but I must admit that I am not really good at it. I know what I am doing(to a point), however, the harder problems stump me and I literally have no idea how to solve some of them. I haven't taken any engineering courses so my idea might change. I just took the newbie Physics for Engineers course.

    I am pretty good at math and I find it pretty interesting. I can study math for 4+ hours without getting overly tired.

    I just want to hear your opinions on this. For teaching, I am hoping for something around high school level.
