Each month, we hand out ballots to our students to select their nominee for the Educator of the Month award. The rules for voters are simple: they may vote any teacher in the building except the one whose class they are currently in! They may tout the virtues of their teachers to other students not in their class, but voting for their own is prohibited!

What advice would you share with fellow and aspiring educators? The advice I would have for aspiring educators is work in the field first and get a good start there then go back and teach because a lot of what I teach in the classroom always comes from experience!!!!
