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

Do all that you can to ensure that each child in your classroom experiences school as "a happy place to be." There will always be more that you can do, so focus on doing what you believe will make the biggest difference in a child's life. Parents need to hear great things about their child. Prepare materials for tomorrow before you leave school today.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The best thing about teaching is the children and collaborating with parents and other team members to seek the best for them.
