Distinguished Teacher Lindamae Gutierrez

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

Teach from the heart and let your passion be felt by all. Effective teaching addresses all possible learning styles by gearing instruction towards all the modalities. Every child has the ability to learn and be successful when provided with an environment conducive for learning. Remember that every child's background and their own personal experiences add the flavor necessary for a stimulating and motivating classroom. Consistency, continuity and providing the students with options and praise for appropriate behaviors are the key elements in classroom management.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The magic, passion, and love that every teacher receives while teaching is the reward for the time and effort they have invested.
