Distinguished Teacher Beverly Berekian

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

One of the most important things for a new teacher to do is to know their students. It is also important to let your students get to know you. They like to know that their teacher is human. It makes them feel special to hear things about you that may seem silly to you, but is important to them.

What's the best thing about teaching?

I enjoy getting to know my students and knowing that I have a chance to make a difference in their lives.
