Distinguished Teacher Stacie Starr

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

"Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education" by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. I believe that teachers need to be positive role models that show students how to act not just in school, but in life. All children need structure, to be challenged, and to know what is expected of them.

What's the best thing about teaching?

The best thing about teaching is being able to do something that you love, while shaping the minds of our future leaders. On a daily basis I can make a child feel intelligent, confident, and safe, just by showing I care about them. I couldn't imagine doing anything else, but being a teacher.
