I just finished up my 18th year of teaching. I teach at a high school, teaching Anatomy and Physiology. I love my job. I frequently wonder what my life would be if I hadn’t stumbled into teaching. I held professional jobs prior to teaching, but they were different. I need a job that allows me to be passionate. Passion is a great asset to a teacher. Sometimes, I feel like it is the only thing that keeps me going during the tough times.
I have always been an empathic person and my previous career really honed this trait. I bring this to my classroom, blend it with science and sit back (yeah right!) and watch learning happen.Photo Credit http://www.flickr.com/photos/oedipusphinx/
