Overview

Teaching can be one of the most fulfilling and gratifying careers AND one of the most challenging. You want to know what you're getting into before making any big career switches and you probably have a lot of questions.

How do I get certified if I didn't study education in college?

What's the difference between public, private, charter, and magnet schools?

How do I decide what grade to teach?

What should I look for when applying for schools?

What are the best parts of teaching?

What are the hardest parts of teaching?

Is there anything I can do to see if this is right for me before I change careers?

I'm Thom Gibson and I've worked for 10 years both in public and private schools. I've taught middle school math, robotics, physical science, a YouTube Video Production class, middle school advisor, and every subject in 5th grade. I've won teacher of the year twice and now support teachers in their classroom practice. I will share my experiences and knowledge so you can decide if teaching is the right move for you.
