Distinguished Teacher Susan Gruber

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

Seek out good mentors--people who are willing to share their knowledge and experience with you, people who will encourage you, and people who will give you honest feedback so you can continue to grow. Then, pay it forward, and find someone you can mentor.

What's the best thing about teaching?

I get to spend each day helping kids discover who they are...what their strengths are, what makes them happy, what they love. There is so much joy in being part of that discovery.
