Flight Attendant or Teacher?

I live in US now. (Excause me I can\'t type Chinese here)

My question is ....

I want to be a flight attendant, or school teacher (maybe teaching Chinese).

Which one is better???

I\'m going to marry and my fiance is an American. He\'s an art teacher in a high school.

I\'m thinking to be flight attendant or school teacher. He think both of us being a teacher is the best for the family.

I know America airlines is losing money.( And Asia airlines\' service is better) But I still dream about to be flight attendant and travel. Now I live in US and thinking about my future.

Please give me opinion if you understand my question in English, thank you!!

(Any current flight attendant answer this question is highly appreciated!! Anyone who\'s not can also give me opinion. I really apprecate this.)


(You can type in Eng or Chinese. Thanks!!)

p.s. I'm 26 years old this year. One thing good about foreign country's airline is they don't depend on ages or appearance. They have very different point of view of F.T. from Taiwan.

Update 2:

My major was English. I became have no specialty

here when I come US. I know US need qaulified Mandrain teachers. But Taiwan's writing is diffirent than China; as I know, American prefer to learn simplified Chinese (easier).

    Well, I think its really up to you.

    you mentioned that you're getting married soon, so I assume that you probably wanna settle down with your.

    But on the other hand, there is your dream. Becoming a flight attendant.

    Dont mean to be rude or anything, how old are you now?

    I mean if you're over 35 I would recommend keeping your dream inside your heart(I know there are attendants who is over 35 but they also started when they were young)

    If you are around 20 ish...I would strongly recommend you to go and give it a try...after all...life doesnt give you a second chance for going after dream.

    and I am sure you are aware that flight attendant dont usually stay in the same country for too long...so that's something you will have to cope and communicate with your husband.

    Hope this helps

    First of all, you need to realize what your specialities are.

    Second, you need to think about what you want. A long term career or just an experience?

    Teacher is going to teache knowledges. Flight attendant is going to serve the passangers. Think about what you are really interested in and the answer will come out.

    If I were you, I would chose be a flight attendant. That is your dream.

    Even if this job couldn't do a long time, but you could do it 2 or 3 yesrs to finish your dream. After all, you could change the job be a teacher. I thought you own the different experince to many country, It is a goods point to be a teacher. becasue you can teach different subjects.
