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

My advice for a new teacher is to love the job you're about to undertake. Although it's demanding, it's also rewarding. Despite adverse circumstances, always try to emit a positive attitude to students, parents, and staff. From my experience, kindness is what makes the world go round.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The best thing about teaching is knowing the students are excited about coming to school. The light in their eyes inspires me to inspire them.
