If you get home after a full day of work and don't feel satisfied then you need to get another job.

I was once told that if you wake up in the morning and aren't excited about your job and the tasks that you are going to complete for that day then you don't have a career that you want to be in, not to mention you won't be happy. Personally I know someone that is a teacher and every day that person is excited to not only go to work but has great stories on how she helped out so many kids. She feels as blessed as a teacher and she should as she has more responsibility that one might think.
I once was asked what the name of my manager was at my first job and I couldn't remember. I then was asked what the name of my first grade teacher was and I instantly answered and continued to tell how she was an inspiration to me and actually to my career. I had known the teacher for over 25 years and she attending my wedding, was at the birth of my daughter and attended my graduation party for my PHD.
The great thing about becoming a teacher is the hands on experiences that you'll have on a daily basis.
