What advice would you give to people considering a career in teaching?
The most helpful thing for me was to take the time to observe other teachers and their classes. As a special education teacher, I observed various programs throughout different districts, as well as county and non-public programs, serving students with a variety of needs. It allowed me to take in bits and pieces from various classroom settings to figure out what works best for me.
What's the best thing about teaching?
The best thing about teaching is the students! I look forward to seeing them every morning and greatly appreciate their take on the world.
