Distinguished Teacher Jenny Chien

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

Any individual who is entering or continuing with the teaching profession should understand how empowering it is to contribute and be a part of something that is bigger than yourself. Sometimes your hours are long and sometimes exhaustion is present but being a part of education is life-changing. The impact we make on our students is exponentially rewarding.

What's the best thing about teaching?

I’m passionate about education and aspire to be a yardstick of quality because I know how education can change lives. I can attest that having an education that’s personal and relevant matters. By focusing on strengths, interests, and values through a personalized approach, students feel empowered to take action to make an impact in the world. Being a part of that is inspiring!
