Day to Day

My workday is different from teachers who teach in a brick-and-mortar school. I spend a lot of each day communicating with my students about their progress, and encouraging them to do their best. Sometimes it's about doing just a little more, sometimes it's praising a job well done, but always it's about flexibility, because no two days are going to be the same. I teach deliver instruction online, but I also meet with students one-on-one, and coach parents, too. Each day is a new challenge.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for middle school students

Learn as much as you can about everything, whether it seems relevant or not. Be open to learning everything and anything. It's easy to say, "I'm never going to use this", but you never know where life will lead you, and what you thought was useless at one point, may become the key to something you need later. Ask questions and don't give up until you get an answer that helps you understand.
