"I was an after school teacher for elementary school age Kids and a pre-k teacher for 13 years. My advice I would give to any age student would be,allow yourself to be curious.There is so much to learn that "isn't on the test."- Amy Jo Kovacs
"I taught ED 4-6 year olds for 4 years. I was head teacher and Director at a Preschool for 7 years. Best advice is to listen well, be kind and have fun." -Lisa Schneider Cox
"Just retired last spring after a 41 year teaching career! I've always taught elementary special education. The last 12 years I taught 4th-6th grade - ELA (English/language arts). My advice...when the going gets tough, which it will often, remember why you wanted to be a teacher in the first place. You mean a lot to the kids and you are having a positive impact on them...although it may not always feel like it. What you do matters! Keep the faith!" - Sandy Tucker Smalling
"23rd years of teaching special education. I am currently teaching 11th and 12th grade English in the resource and inclusion settings. My advice for students is to always do the best they can and ask for help if needed." - Kim Wood
"Taught for 33 years, elementary 3, high 3, the rest middle school...special education ELA and math. Retired now but work part-time in the school system doing the academic testing for initial/re-evaluations for special education students K-12 in my county. Try hard/ believe in yourselves/ be prepared to work hard to achieve your dreams/ treat others the way you would like to be treated." - Terry Cockrill Lawson
