What is the most challenging aspect of your job?
Meeting the needs of all learners with limited resources is one of many obstacles teachers encounter.
 
What’s the most common misconception about your job?
I am not just a teacher to my students, they become my children. Our class community becomes a family.
 
Where do you see the teaching field in 5 years?
I see education moving away from multiple choice standardized testing and engaging students in more authentic learning. We are already using project based learning to prepare them for the real world. I also see computer programing becoming a mainstay of education curriculum.
 
What outside experience prepared you best to become a teacher?
I realized at an early age that I wanted to be a lifelong learner and knew I wanted to instill that in others.
