Is It the Right Fit for Me?

A teaching career is a good fit for people who like to help others and make an important impact on their lives. Teachers must be adaptive, patient, cooperative, enthusiastic, and good at diffusing difficult situations. The most successful teachers are lifelong learners themselves, always looking for new and better ways to guide students.
