What advice would you give to people considering a career in teaching?
Teaching isn't an easy profession and it's time consuming but so rewarding in so many ways. If you have the passion for education and teenagers, give it a try. If you look forward to getting up and going to work, then you've made the right choice.
What's the best thing about teaching?
With a career as long as mine there are many high points. Having former students return or get in touch and tell how the class or I have made a positive impact on them is rewarding and often I didn't know it at the time. It's also been rewarding to implement a shop for robotics and engineering and to have developed the Engineering Robotics course these are both life changing for so many students.
