Educated and mentored many adolescents!
High/Middle School Teacher and Athletic Director (Former Employee), Coral Springs, FLJune 1, 2014
Pros: making a difference!
Cons: lack of respect and pay for educators.
I served as a math teacher for 4 years and as a Physical Education teacher for one year. I truly enjoyed my years as an educator as I was privileged to positively influence many teen aged students for a brighter future in our society. Teachers in this country are not valued enough but there is not one career with more influence on our future. I also had the pleasure to serve as a middle school athletic director for two of those years. I was responsible for accurately managing the school's athletic department and budget.
