    “Education is changing rapidly, and the world needs good teachers. My advice would be to create a strong relationship with those they work with: their peers, professors, and cooperating teachers in the field. There is so much to learn from others. Always keep an open mind and dedicate yourself to becoming a lifelong learner.”
