    Please state your name (or u can just put ur last name, i.e. Mrs. Williams), what grade u teach, and where u teach (i.e. Oakland,California)
    I teach Kindergarten in Floida.
    1. How did you get to your present position?
    Interviewed for it.
    2. Describe a typical work day and work week.
    Circle time, handwriting, reading, special area. Lunch. recess. Math, Social studies/Science, centers. pack up to go home. Same everyday!!
    3. What are the most rewarding aspects of your job? The least rewarding?
    Most rewarding is having a child "get it"; learn how to read; love school/learning. least rewarding: dealing with NCLB, administration and uncaring parents.
    4. What type of skills and experience are necessary and most helpful in your career?
    Patience, flexibility, versitility, creativity, the love of learning, unafraid of challenges and being able to think on your feet
    5. How does your career affect your life style? I tend to do things that relate to education; take my son to educational places and use alot of "teachable moments"!
    6. Do you have any advice for someone like me who is planning to start a career in this field? ]Make sure it's the right career for you. You have to love teaching to be a good teacher.
    7. How did you know you wanted to become a teacher? I first started teaching as a teacher's aid when I was in 5th grade. I instantly knew it was the career for me. I've been doing it ever since.
    8. What did you learn as a teacher that couldn't be taught in a college course?
    ]Everything you teach will not be learned. All lessons will not go over as well as you thought they would. All children will not respond to you in the same way. School administrators suck!!
    9. What do teachers do during the summer?
    The same thing anyone does. Go to the beach, relax and have fun!
    10. Can u name some classes that u have taken in college that is beneficial for my teaching career?(also plz state what college u went to if thats okay)
    All of them!!
