Distinguished Teacher Carlos Negrete

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

Always be fair, firm, and consistent. Remember that every interaction that you have with your students has the potential to be a life-changing event. Always prepare to meet the needs of all students and expect high levels of learning no matter their designations or background.

What's the best thing about teaching?

Teaching offers new challenges every day and provides an opportunity to impact the lives of many and challenge yourself to be the best that you can possibly be. The thousands of "little victories" amount to enormous success for our students.
