Start of Work Day: For breakfast I have Honey Nut Cherrios cereal and raspberry yogurt with nuts. I drive to school in my Subaru. I arrive in 20 min..

Lunch Responsibilities: Help students who might need to make up a quiz or test in my room. Some kids who get in trouble eat their lunch in my room or makeup work. If none of that happens I either eat in the teacher’s lounge or in my room with friends as I make lesson plans or score papers. Waking Up: Alarm goes off at 6:00 am. and I get out of bed to pick a skirt and sweater or some nice dress outfit to wear.

On occasion my friends might come over or invite me to eat out. Afternoon Responsibilities: Make sure students write homework down and start cleaning up. I could have bus duty or a meeting. Some days I’ll have extra training classes to attend.

Interesting Articles Student Stories "Mr. Ferriola was truly my best teacher in HS. He made learning so much fun. He understood that everyone learned differently and as long as you could prove how you derived at your answers he was ok with that. He was always available whether it was after school or before. He was truly awesome. He encouraged you to reach for the stars and go get those goals and if I was to become a teacher I'd want to be like him and no other." —Kerryann Evans, Mount Vernon High School, New York Stop for a minute and think about a teacher who made a difference for you.
