Advice for First-Year Students:
Spend time watching teachers and reflecting on what makes them effective then critically evaluate your own skill set and interests and see how well they line up.
I personally enjoy learning new things. I also see how knowledge and the ability to use knowledge and skills in creative ways opens up opportunities for people. In this way, I see that education has the ability to empower people to fulfill their personal callings. The opportunity to be part of that empowerment process is a great privilege of an educator.
