Pros: throughly enjoyed watching my students grow in theiri mastery of the french language, culture, and history. over the years, some followed in my footsteps, and went on to become french teachers as well.
Cons: the threat of union teacher strikes was always on everyone's mind.
Teaching at Toledo Public Schools was a very challenging and rewarding experience for me. My superiors were highly competent, kind, and most supportive of me as one of their teachers. They made reporting to work each day throughout the years so enjoyable for me, I looked forward to coming to work each day.
I taught both French and English Composition at the Secondary Level. My students truly enjoyed learning their above listed subject matters, and approached them with vigor.
As students graduated from high school, many came back later to personally thank me in preparing them for their collegiate studies.
