So, you're at that crossroads moment where you answer “teacher” to the once-simple childhood question: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" It has you feeling excited, overwhelmed and truthfully a little queasy. Or at least, that's how I felt eight years ago when I decided to leave a successful business career to pursue what I felt was a “calling” to teach.
Of course, perhaps like you, I had a zillion questions all running through my head at the same time. Which teacher prep program to choose? Which subjects and grades to teach?
And, one of the most challenging questions of all--one that still keeps me up at night: how can I teach in a way that makes learning relevant, addicting, and action-inspiring for both me and my students?
Well, settle in because this is where my real story starts and yours can begin, too.
