Who was your favorite teacher? Why?
My favorite teacher was Mr. Art Wagner, a Biology Professor from my college days. He proved to me that if one's career is truly one's passion in life then a person will never really have to "work" their entire life. Instead they will simply get to pursue their passion. The trick is choosing that career wisely.

Who was your favorite teacher and why?
My favorite teacher was my fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Lusk. She was kind, nice, and had a great sense of humor.
What profession other than your own would you most like to attempt?
What are three things every teacher should own?
An open mind and an open heart because each student has unique circumstances and needs. And the third? A laptop (or iPad)--with all the work piled on teachers, it's essential that they can take it with them so they spend every hour of the day at school.
