Distinguished Teacher Cyndi Page

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

Never forget that every day contains a new experience for you. We learn from the students, and our colleagues; from successes and challenges. Don't miss those opportunities to learn by getting caught up in the minutia or viewing challenges as "problems".

What's the best thing about teaching?

My favorite thing about teaching is the adventure that each day brings. I enjoy a challenge, so those challenging days are the ones that keep teaching alive for me. I also love the connections I have made with other teachers and staff in and out of the subject I teach. I have learned so much and gain so many insights from those around me; I am very fortunate to be surrounded by so many incredible people.
