Well, I have the equivalent of about 20 years' teaching experience in a tremendously diverse array of settings. I could write an essay, nay a book, aimed at answering your question. Some of my experience was really painful, some of it was fun. It depends first of all on where you work: sector (the higher the better), college and country. Countries like the UK have, what I would call, damaging institutions like Ofsted and the QAA with nonsensical legislation that tends to clog things up until you can't do your job. HE escapes some of the toxic red-tape, though the QAA is apparently campaigning to change all of that. Administrators can make your job worthless, so try to find a college which really lets you get on with your job. Teaching is a very difficult job and is certainly no easy option. Maybe do a training course first and get some experience as a part-time teacher before you commit. I am self-employed, I decided long ago that I didn't want to get too entwined in red-tape by becoming an official college employee. This also gives me some control over workload, which if left to administrators escalates exponentially.
