Distinguished Teacher Jody Johnson

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

I would advise new teachers to watch and learn from their colleagues. They should incorporate the successful strategies they use into their own teaching. The strategies they choose to incorporate should compliment their individual teaching styles.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The best thing about teaching Adapted Physical Education has been the opportunity to show students that it is about their ability not their disability. To see students be successful at physical activities is rewarding for everyone involved.
