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

Laugh with your students often because teaching and learning can be stressful. Enjoy each and every moment because the school year goes by quickly. Cherish every smile, hug, and high five you receive. Finally, acknowledge that you have made a difference in each of your student's lives.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The best thing about teaching is when a student has that "light bulb" moment. They finally understand the concept and have found success.
