I started out teaching one class of 10th grade and the rest of my day being general and honors level 11th graders, but was switched to 9th grade after our winter break because my principal had more faith in me to prep kids for state testing and the rest of high school than any other teacher

(given that this is my first year, that was a huge compliment)

It is comfy and great though, especially when the kids love you. I've turned some kids onto crazy shit--one 9th grader is reading In Cold Blood, a junior is reading Beowulf and loving it, and one girl has read like 4 Toni Morrison books, Native Son, and is now on Invisible Man thanks to me

Just make sure you go through and get the education degree--it is FAR more important to learn HOW to teach and how to build relationships with kids than it is to know more and more content. You can always read more books on your own and study that shit, but those who come to the profession clueless on educational pedagogy normally get their asses kicked and leave in the first 3 years.

Also, make sure to get some experience in so called "urban" schools if you can. They're the ones that are always hiring and, if you know what you're doing, working with those kids rather than in boring suburbs are 1000% more impactful. I have so many of my students call me "dad" and get up in arms if they even THINK someone is being a dick to me, it's endearing and really gives life back to you.

Most of the stress in teaching comes from the mandates placed (in the U.S.) by the state you teach in. In my state (Ohio) we are actually starting state testing tomorrow. My 9th graders are taking their first test over 9th grade Language Arts that is just one of 6 tests that determine if they can graduate. As a teacher, 50% of my teacher "grade" (which impacts pay, ability to be rehired, etc.) comes from the scores my kids receive on that test.

Also there's all kinds of mandates depending on your district on how often you have to contact parents, follow up on student absences, etc.

The most burdensome part of the job though, especially when working at a high-need district like mine, is how many students have insane life situations. I have multiple students who come to me to discuss their depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, pregnancy scares, body troubles, abusive relationships, family trauma, grief over dead relatives, and basically every issue under the sun that should never happen to a 15 year old. That takes a toll on you, especially when you're juggling so many other responsibilities, all starting out at an insanely low base pay compared to other professions.

I graduate soon with a degree in Economics, would it be worthwhile to go back to school for a masters in Education to teach or do like a lot of people do nowadays and go through Teach For America? Just in general, of course. I'm probably just going to join the Army. My entire family are teachers and they all love it. Money never been an issue for me.

There are definitely pros and cons to both paths. Going for the Master's would get you far more information, theory, and practice than T4A, but then some schools may hesitate to hire you because they're getting someone with less experience who they have to pay more because they have a Master's. More I think about it though, Teach For America places teachers in high need districts anyway though and, given the state of education, most high need districts are in such need for willing teachers that they DO hire people with Master's without much hesitation, so I'd just go Master's route

Economics.
Economics is decent in that it gives you lots of options career wise. However it's a bit of a meme subject.
Almost no jobs you do with it will use any economic theory, and as Michael Lewis has frequently pointed out banks only like it because it shows you are willing to slog through a hard subject.
I've always thought psychology is a far more practical field of study, yet due to the calibre of people who take it it gets relegated to a meme subject.
