The enjoyment and reward I receive from teaching driver education is participating in the improvement and development of the student as they are learning to drive. I see them evolve often from being timid and frightened to having a measure of confidence and skill at the end of Segment I, driver education. It is also rewarding to get to know the parents and have them closely involved in their teen's progress. Lastly, I thoroughly enjoy when graduates of mine show me their driver's license, share with me some of their driving experiences, and often attribute credit to me for obtaining their driving privilege.

We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with so many great teens at such an exciting time in their lives. Using our influence as a driver education instructors, we attempt to make the most of this brief opportunity by energetically and enthusiastically teaching teens the importance of driving responsibly and defensively. It is satisfying and rewarding to us to be involved in that part of a teenager's life and to teach an important skill they will use the rest of their lives.
Getting to know each teen on an individual basis has also meant a lot to us.
What's more satisfying for a teacher than teaching teens who want to learn? Getting to know each driver and using the influence I have to impact his or her driving attitudes and skills is important to me. Meeting and talking with drivers from around the world who need a driving test is very interesting; after each driving test, I make sure to give feedback to each driver to help them be a safer, more defensive driver on the road.
It is my goal to teach teens to drive with safety and courtesy, with good skills and habits. It is my privilege to teach tens and hopefully make an impact on the way they will drive.
I interact with teenagers in many different capacities: as a driver education instructor, a substitute teacher, a soccer coach, and a soccer referee. In my role as a driver education instructor, my goal is to teach and train students to become the safest and most defensive driver on the road with each driving lesson we have together. In the classroom, I look for innovative ways to teach which involve many hands-on methods. I have always enjoyed working with teens and teaching them to drive is very rewarding.
