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

Balance your life between work and play. Don't sweat the small stuff. When you make the important stuff your priority, you will do well. It's important to maintain your passions -- don't let the paperwork take over your life.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The best things about teaching are those "ah-ha!" moments when you see a child "get's it!"
