The three pieces of wisdom about being a teacher I have learned from interviewing Paige Perry are

  1. Even though it isn’t the highest paying job for the amount of time you go to school, it is the most fulfilling
  2. You continue to make new connections with the staff and the students for all the years that you teach and they will become family
  3. There are some things that the job won’t let you do, and you can’t fix that right away, you have to wait for the job to catch up with you.
