MY ROUTE:

The Curved Road

MY WORK LIFE:

Teacher

foundation interest 1 interest 2

My work allows me to combine the foundation of TEACHING / MENTORING and the interests of EDUCATION and PHILOSOPHY & RELIGION.


DAY IN AND DAY OUT

A great day at work begins with greeting every student and asking them how they are-and genuinely caring how they respond! The great day continues when they engage in learning something new. I love our conversations, our discoveries, our joint enlightenment-me, about them, and them, about the topic. I simply love seeing their faces when understanding comes. I also love saying " and this is how this skill will help you in the future."

SKILLS, TRAINING, OR EXPERIENCE NEEDED

Teaching is a human endeavor. One has to truly care about the quality of the lives of his or her students, both in the present and in the future. If you don't have the desire or ability to connect with another human being on an emotional level, then this isn't the field for you. You have to be willing to cry.

SOME HELPFUL FIRST STEPS FOR SOMEONE IN HIGH SCHOOL

Focus. Take the highest level class in every discipline that you can. (College will be easier.) Be self-disciplined in thoughts and words and deeds. Be aware of the fact that your every action creates the future reality that you will inhabit.
