    Hi Austin,

    Welcome to the teaching profession. This will be the hardest job you’ll ever love! This is my 11th year teaching – I taught high school for 7 years, this is my 4th year teaching 7th and 8th grade math. As a beginning teacher, I wish I knew how important it was to build relationships with students. Before students can learn from you, they need to know that you care about them — not just as students, but as individuals.

    Best of luck to you!
