What advice would you give to people considering a career in teaching?

My advice to new teachers is to be sure that you are passionate about your subject(s), about children or youth, and about your desire to contribute to the development of our youth. Know that you make a difference. You may be the one person who provides a young person the opportunity to realize the power of their own thinking and to confidently pursue their dreams.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The best thing about teaching is that you get to make a difference in the lives of our youth and influence their potential for success, well-being, and happiness. Teaching keeps you young and alive.
