Chapter 1, How I Became an English Teacher
My late father was annoying. He followed me around to announce my success in high school entrance exams, and when I got a job, he drove more than two hours to the cram school where I worked to greet my boss.
By the time I was a sophomore in high school, I planned to go into the sciences. I wanted to build robots. However, Yokkaichi High School had a high percentage of boys at the time and had a boys' class, and I was thrown into that class.
I was thrown into the boys' class, which is still the case today, but even then, most of the boys were science majors, and I studied thinking that it was natural for me to go into the sciences, but when I started studying mathematics, I began to feel dizzy.
It seems that this created a physiological rejection of being forced to use formulas even though I was not convinced of their origins. According to the results of the mock examinations, I could pass the entrance exam of a difficult national university if I majored in the humanities, but not if I majored in science. In tears, I decided to study at the Faculty of Education.
I had no choice but to become an English teacher to survive. However, even in English, I found that they had many problems when I took a serious look at it.
