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

Take one positive moment away from each teaching day, one gem. Remember it, and put it in your pocket for later, for when things go wrong you will need it to remind yourself of the importance of the work you do.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The best thing about teaching is the face of the child at the end of the school day, the smile that says thank you, and the eyes that say you will be missed.
