I found my calling as a teacher when I as still in high school. It kept coming back. I once had a license plate holder that said “Born to Teach”.  After 25 years in public school classrooms I was worn out by the all the demands that were draining my teaching spirit.


Then I found my way to teaching online. Returning to school at age 50 was the key.  I fought for a better way to teach… and found it online. ~ Dennis

    It is easy to say that find what you are good at but it is the toughest task. In my class (Grade XII) when I asked my students to list three things in which they are good at, majority of them were at a loss. There reaction was, ask me to point out our bad qualities we can give a list of ten things but not this.As for me I too found my calling very late in life when I switched from offline to online teaching.
