Distinguished Teacher Kirsten Johnson

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

Love what you do! Have a vested interest in the students that you are teaching! Teach and treat each one as if they are your own, and you will strive for educational excellence! Persevere!

What's the best thing about teaching?

Having the Opportunity to engage with the future geniuses and see the beginning of their path. Then having them come back to you to visit and see how their efforts have taken them effectively through the educational process! Staying connected with my students through adulthood, and having them still believe that I am one of their favorite teachers after numerous years of education!
