Here at LearnBop we have a team of amazing educators with diverse backgrounds who have come on board to author content for our interactive Bops. To help you get to know them better, we have a series of Author Profiles. Today's installment is written by Cheryl Winberry, a valued member of our author team.
When I graduated high school, I swore I would never be a teacher. But here I am seventeen years later, and I would not consider any other profession.
When I was in my first semester of college I changed my major from Accounting to Secondary Mathematics Education. My decision was made for many different reasons. One, I wanted a family one day and thought that a teacher would have summers off and be able to spend time raising a family. (Notice I used the word “thought”.) Even though summers are spent preparing for the next school year and recovering from the previous, I do get more time with my children than moms in other professions.
