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

Being a new teacher can be very intimidating, overwhelming as well as exciting. Be open minded and learn from your mistakes. Keep a positive attitude, be a team player, be flexible, patient, consistent, organized, and most of all, keep a sense of humor

What's the best thing about teaching?

I believe one of the best things about teaching is knowing you can make a difference in a child's life. To see the light go on in their eyes when they "get it" is extremely gratifying.
