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

I have found that structure and consistency are strong components for a successful classroom. Using plenty of praise and positive reinforcement are also key for any classroom environment. I also try to find fun and learning in everything we do.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The best thing about teaching for me is watching children learn and grow. Even the smallest accomplishment can bring the most joy!
