Distinguished Teacher Aimee Schmitz

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

Take advantage of opportunities to observe your colleagues, as they will provide you with valuable learning opportunities. Keep an open mind to what others can teach you and don't be afraid to try something new.

I am blessed to be a part of a profession that is shaping our future generation. It is a privilege to be a voice for those who otherwise may not be heard.
