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

By the end of the day, you will know more than when the day began. And this will happen again tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that, and on and on and you will grow to become the teacher you desire to be. It will be hard at times but it will also be fun.

What's the best thing about teaching?

I work with remarkable teenagers who make each school day unique and exciting. Seeing their pride in their growth is joyful and makes all my effort worth it. I have met and worked with people with hearts of gold and they have enriched my life.
