Passionate Teaching

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.
